In 1975 Houston’s Mini Coaches started of as a small family run business with only a few buses available for private hire and a handful of school contracts and local council contracts. Now Houston’s Mini Coaches have expanded with depots in Lockerbie and Dumfries and are now a second generation family run business. We have over 70 employees and a strong fleet of around 45 vehicles, which supply the local area with a first class service.
We have 16, 33, 49, 51 and 53 seater coaches available to hire for Weddings, Airport Transfers, School Hires, Day Tours etc. We also have service buses that are used on our council routes around Dumfries and Galloway.
Our local council contracts cover a 60 mile radius from Langholm to Gatehouse of Fleet. We offer reasonable, affordable day and weekly tickets and a special return ticket on selected services.
In 2008 we expanded our services for day trips around the UK, with a variety of locations as far afield as Chester, in the south of England and Loch Lomond, in the north of Scotland. Every year we try our best to offer customers a varied selection of Day Trips to cover all ages and interest, to give our customers the opportunity to discover the UK in a trouble free and relaxed environment.
Our office is based in Lockerbie at Broomhouses 1 Industrial Estate, Lockerbie, DG11 2RZ.
