London General Omnibus Company
Group From 1855 To 1933
Transport company. It was originally an Anglo-French enterprise, also known as the Compagnie Generale des Omnibus de Londres. It became the largest omnibus operator in London, buying out hundreds of independently owned buses. In 1912, it was bought by the Underground Group, which owned most of the London Underground, and eventually became, first, part of the new London Passenger Transport Board, and then Transport for London.
