Regal Busways was incorporated in July 2001 and originally based in Newhaven, East Sussex. The company's main business was the undertaking of rail replacement work at weekends. In February 2002 a business review was undertaken and the business relocated to Essex.
In April 2002 Regal Busways commenced operating services under contract to Essex County Council. (ECC) Following the loss of most of its contracted work in mid-2017, it last commercial routes were withdrawn in December 2017. The only route retained was an ECC contracted service in Basildon.
The fleet livery was cream and maroon. This was replaced in 2010 by a red livery.
On 16 May 2013, an Alexander ALX400 bodied Dennis Trident 2 collided with the railway bridge at Duke Street, Chelmsford, resulting in the entire upper deck roof being torn away. There were no injuries to the two passengers aboard, although the driver was treated for shock at the scene.
