Merry Hill Minibuses was the bus operating arm of the Merry Hill Shopping Centre in Dudley, England.


The Merry Hill Minibus, or after 1998, Travel Merry Hill company was originally owned by the former owners of the Merry Hill Centre, Richardson's. One of the first routes that was started was route 368/610 (Dudley/Halesowen - Merry Hill - Ashwood Park - Merry Hill - Dudley/Halesowen).

National Express takeoverEdit

During 1997 Merry Hill Minibuses was taken over by West Midlands Travel's parent company National Express who continued to run it as a separate subsidiary. The operating centre was moved in 1999 from the back of the Merry Hill Centre to the Pensnett Trading Estate in Dudley.
