Driver keeps up family tradition
with National Express

Starting in the 1920s, the Dimmock family has followed in each other’s footsteps by driving National Express buses for nearly 100 years.

Mike has been a bus driver for NatEx West Midlands for the last 3.5 years

Mike Dimmock, 51, is keeping up his family tradition by becoming the third generation of Dimmock drivers, following his father and grandfather.

He has been a bus driver with National Express West Midlands for the last three and a half years, having retired from the police force after 21 years of service.

  Says Mike: “There are still a few people in the business now who remember my dad - but I’d love to hear from anybody else who remembers him or my grandfather.”

Mike’s father, Robert ‘Bob’ Dimmock, served 45 years with the same company, while his grandfather, John ‘Jack’ Dimmock, was also driving buses in the 1920s and 1930s when the company was known as Midland Red.
