GHA Coaches Limited ceased trading on the evening of Wednesday 13th July 2016 and on the following day Jason Bell and Christopher Petts of Grant Thornton UK LLP were appointed administrators.

The GHA Group had in excess of 270 buses and coaches in operation with services covering a wide area including north east Wales, west and east Cheshire, north Shropshire and parts of Merseyside, Greater Manchester and Staffordshire . At times their buses could be found operating in Barmouth to the west and Manchester to the east.  They had depots at Ruabon, Ruthin, Tarvin, Winsford and Shrewsbury.  The GHA Group was made up of a number of companies including GHA Coaches Limited, Bryn Melyn Limited, Vale of Llangollen Travel Ltd. and Dobsons Buses Limited but for the last year or so the companies were merged to the parent company GHA Coaches Limited.

One of the interesting aspects of the company was the number of liveries used for various reasons (over 30). I have set out a description of these liveries with photos on the following pageGHA liveries Clicking on a photo will enlarge it in a new window.
