The Kings Ferry brand is used on commuter services from the Medway Towns to Victoria Coach Station, London.

The Travel Link brand is used for commuter services from the Isle of Sheppey and Sittingbourne. Travel Link was created from a merger of the previous Travel Rite lower-cost brand, and The London Link, a company established by the Kings Ferry in 1999.

From November 2013 until April 2016, Kings Ferry operated services in Bristol and South Gloucestershire under contract to North Somerset Council.

In October 2015, Kings Ferry commenced operating a service from Maidstone to London.

VIP Coach Hire

National Express Transport Solutions gained experience of VIP travel service by providing coach services to such high-profile clients such as Premier League football clubs.

Under the group’s expansion, this has expanded into a separate VIP services division with the highest specification vehicles, from small mini-coaches to 35 seated full-size coaches. The group also expanded into luxury car services and a helicopter hire operation.
