Eventually, amalgamations and take-overs saw two large companies as owners of the station - Tilling and BET.
The 1968 Transport Act established the National Bus Company (NBC) to bring together the bus and coach interests of both companies.
During the 1970s Victoria Coach Station was run by National Travel (South East) Limited. At the end of 1978, the station was taken over by Victoria Coach Station Limited.
Victoria Coach Station Limited was acquired by London Transport in 1988 at the request of the Secretary of State for Transport.
