Airport Express Bus relies on a 100 years of experience in the field; the latest line linking London and Stansted Airport represents a new chapter in the international growth strategy of the parent company based in Italy.

The coach service from London-Stansted, operated by Airport Bus Express, runs 20 hours a day, 365 days a year, from 06.00 am to 02.00 every 30 minutes, with a fleet of 12 coaches. We operate brand new fleet of coaches, we put the utmost of care into recruiting the drivers and we place great importance in the careful maintenance and cleaning of our coaches. We have on board free wifi and power sockets to charge phones, tablets and laptops. The 49 premium seats are very comfortable due to the distance between the rows of seats in order to ensure a better travel experience.

Tickets can be purchased either at the dedicated desk at the airport, at the Bus Bays 13-14, directly at the bus stops Victoria Station (Bus Stop 11 Buckingham Palace Road ), London Baker Street (Gloucester Place ), Stratford Queen Elizabeth – Olympic Park – Stop L,  close Liverpool Street Station – 80 Commercial Street – stop 205 and our website.

Autostradale was founded in 1924. It was one of the first travel companies in Italy. The goal was to promote and plan bus travel.

Today, it is a customer-orientated business which is always looking to improve through efficiency, taking care of its customers’ needs, respect; the environment and punctuality.

Autostradale offers a wide range of services to ensure safe travel and to operate a widespread network of services. We regularly upgraded our coaches. We have a large number of ticket points with convenient price plans for students and commuters. Our links between cities and airports and organised sightseeing tours, are a highlight with tourists.
