Bee Line

Details about Bee Line

Private bus company which was founded in West Hartlepool in 1934. The company provided holiday tours to resorts around the UK, later into Europe and actually owned the Royal York Hotel on the Isle of Wight in the past. They were also known for day trips, mystery tours and were hired for private tours. The company had large garage premises  in Oxford Road until closure in 1986.

It appears Beeline headquarters later became Linthorpe Middlesbrough and the company later became Ellerman Beeline before disappearing.

Many people of Hartlepool will remember travelling 'on the Beeline' as was commonly said at the time.
