First is the UK's leading bus operator, transporting more than 2.8m passengers around the country every day.
Our Potteries depot is situated in Stoke-on-Trent, between Hanley & Longton, and provides local and inter-urban services throughout the Potteries and is also part of a regional structure that includes sister depots in Leicestershire and Worcestershire.
Stoke-on-Trent was formed from six towns - Stoke, Hanley, Fenton, Tunstall, Burslem & Longton and all continue to be served by First along with nearby Newcastle-under-Lyme. Hanley is the city centre of Stoke-on-Trent where you'll find the main shopping areas but each town has its own amenities and maintains its own identity.
First is proud to play an important part in keeping the Potteries moving by providing a comprehensive network of bus services and offering a wide range of ticketing products to suit peoples travel needs.
If you are a resident or a visitor to the area and you are looking to travel around in a safe, comfortable and stress free environment and without having to find a parking space, give the bus a try and travel with us.
