Thomas Tilling Limited
launched a new subsidiary company called Brighton Hove and District Omnibus Company Limited on the 26th November 1935 with a nominal capital of £400,000 in £1 shares.
This was in order to aquire the business of omnibus proprietors, public service vehicle operators and carriage builders, in and between the towns of Brighton and Hove, generally within a radius of ten miles from the Old Steine.
The fleetname was then changed on all vehicles from the cream Thomas Tilling panel to a gold leaf Brighton Hove & District.

The first vehicle bought into this new company ownership, was an eight year old Dennis 30cwt, with Short Brothers 18 seat all metal construction, purchased secondhand from Southdown Motor Services in March. Registered UF3023 and numbered 6317, being used as a spare by BH&D, was mainly found on route 9.

Some 33 years later this same company ordered its first ten single deckers since the Dennis Ace single deck buses of the 1930's with new advances at the time of one-man operation. The last of this batch numbered 210 PPM210G, survives today where these ten became the companies very last order to be delivered in the Red & Cream of BH&D just prior to the absorbtition with Southdown Motor Services the following year, taking effect as of the 1st January 1969. All later vehicles even when delivered in Red & Cream although in the Brighton, Hove & District order book, became directly owned by Southdown.

By 1985 the story continues with deregulation with Brighton, Hove & District becoming brought to life again under its new name of Brighton & Hove Bus and Coach Company, with garages at Conway Street and Whitehawk.

See operator section for more on the company after 1985.
