Whittles can trace its roots back to 1926 when Ron Whittle's father and two brothers, based in Highley, Shropshire set up in business taking miners to and from their villages to the pits, and hauling coal in between shift changes.
In 1939 'Go Whittle' opened a second office in Kidderminster and in the 1950s, the brothers decided it was time to specialise; they chose passenger transport and disposed of their trucks.
Ron Whittle joined the company from school at the age of 19 in the mid-sixties and by 1989 they had 50 staff and 37 coaches.
In January 2004 Hull based EYMS purchased Whittles which included 50 vehicles and 100 full time and part time staff.
In January 2015 Johnsons Coach Travel of Henley-in-Arden bought Whittles, which by now was a much smaller company and returned to specialising in coach travel.
