Greyhound UK is a low-cost intercity scheduled coach service in the United Kingdom, owned by FirstGroup and based on the long-established Greyhound service in the USA.

It began operations on 14 September 2009 as an hourly service between London and Portsmouth or Southampton. Further routes between London and the south coast, and between Swansea and Cardiff, were launched in 2010. On 10 January 2011 Greyhound UK took over operation of overnight coach services between London and Glasgow that had previously been operated by First Glasgow.
