The company was formed in 1987 following the acquisition of small coaching and private-hire businesses. Truronian had continued to expand in recent years following awards of tenders from Cornwall County Council and at time of acquisition by First Group has over 200 staff and around 100 vehicles.

Truronian also had a travelshop in Truro.
The company was purchased by First Group in February 2008.
