Ribble Motor Services was a large regional bus operator in the North West England based in Preston.
Ribble Motor Services commenced operating in 1919, and grew to be the largest operator in the region, with a territory stretching from Carlisle in Cumberland to southern Lancashire.
In 1961, the Scout Motor Services business was purchased, and absorbed into Ribble in 1968. The W. C. Standerwick coaching business had been purchased in 1932 but was kept as a separate subsidiary of Ribble.
