Centrebus Holdings is bus company in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire. It is a partnership between Arriva and Centrebus, created in May 2008 to purchase both K-Line Travel and Stagecoach Yorkshire's Huddersfield operations.
In March 2008, it was reported that Stagecoach Yorkshire were in discussions for Arriva to purchase their bus operations in Huddersfield. Arriva subsidiary Arriva Yorkshire already operated services in the town, so purchasing Stagecoach's operations would enlarge their presence. At the time Arriva registered a trading name of "The Huddersfield Bus Company", registered on the Arriva Southern Counties license.
Shortly afterwards, six of the newest Stagecoach Huddersfield buses were moved away to other depots.
It was announced in May 2008 that Centrebus Holdings had been formed to purchase the company. Centrebus Holdings is owned jointly by the directors of Centrebus, with a 40% stake held by Arriva. Despite the name, Centrebus Holdings does not own the Centrebus company.

Teamdeck, trading as K-Line Travel, operate a number of services in the Huddersfield and Kirklees area. Most of their vehicles are sourced from the Arriva Bus & Coach dealership, the UK imported of VDL vehicles. At around the same time of the Stagecoach agreement, it was announced that Centrebus Holdings would take over K-Line.
With the purchase of both Stagecoach and K-Line, Centrebus Holdings has become the second largest bus operator in Huddersfield, second to First West Yorkshire, whom Centrebus Holdings now rival. The company decided to retain the K-Line name, and operate the former Stagecoach services under the Huddersfield Bus Company name. However, employees had been asked for ideas of a new name, of which one could be the former County Motors name, taken over by Yorkshire Traction.
In November 2009, it was announced that Centrebus Holdings would take over some contracted services previously run by First West Yorkshire in the Calderdale area, including Greetland, Halifax, Ripponden, Sowerby Bridge and Stainland from January 2010. Unlike services in Huddersfield, most of the Calderdale services would run under the Centrebus name and take on the Centrebus identity, while the 536 and 537 is operated by Huddersfield Bus Company from their Waterloo depot and the 343 is operated by K-Line. As a result, a new depot has been obtained in Elland for its Calderdale operations.

In April 2010, Centrebus Holdings obtained another service under the Huddersfield Bus Company division, taking over the 435/436 from Arriva. They also extended further by obtained three Leeds Bradford Airport bus services that were previously ran by First, the 737 and 747 to Bradford and the 757 to Leeds. Like the Calderdale operations, these services would be operated under the Centrebus name, although the services were originally registered under the Huddersfield Bus Company, there are now registered under the name White Rose Bus, with a depot ]],on kirkstall road behind arla foods (you can get some great pics from leeds liverpool canal). The company would face competition as First continued to run the 757 service between the airport and Leeds railway station, while Centrebus ran to the bus station. However, Centrebus will be the only operator of the 757 from July 2010, when First cancel the service . At the same time, Centrebus will start to operate more services in the Bradford and Leeds areas, winning contracts from Metro for services previously run by First, while some service will be jointly operated by the two companies.
In October 2010, Centrebus's Elland depot took over the operation of three of Halifax Joint Committee's services in Halifax, the 28A, 34 and 36, while K-Line took over HJC's 31 service. 20 drivers from HJC transferred over to Centrebus .
