Tillingbourne Bus Company was a bus operating company based in Cranleigh, Surrey, England. The company was founded in 1924 and known as Tillingbourne Valley Services between 1931 and 1972. It expanded significantly in the 1970s and 1980s to operate a fleet of 70 buses on a network of routes in Surrey, West Sussex, Hampshire and a small part of Berkshire. Tillingbourne took over the services of Orpington & District in 1981; these were split from the main company in 1983 to form Metrobus, now part of the Go-Ahead Group. A subsidiary, Dorking Coaches, was operated towards the end of Tillingbourne''s life. The company was placed in administration in March 2001 following two years of heavy losses, and closed down permanently a month later. This led to a string of service changes which saw its operations covered by a significant number of different operators, and the disposal of its vehicles, many for further service.
