Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In the 1970s the main UK bus groups were the National Bus Company, the Scottish Bus Group, the Passenger Transport Executives and various council-owned concerns. Today we have Stagecoach, First and Arrival, plus several smaller groups, with just a handful of councils still owning bus operations. Throughout these major changes to the bus industry, there have been hundreds of smaller independent bus companies running stage carriage services on the roads of the United Kingdom. In this book we look at these, from the small operators with just one or two buses, to the larger fleets, such as Lancashire United. Since the 1970s, many independent companies have been swallowed up by larger groups, and one or two have ceased trading. However, many are still thriving and other operators have taken the place of those that we've lost. Deregulation in 1986 brought a host of new bus operators, competing for business with the companies that had run their services for many years. Inevitably, there were some casualties, but today the independent bus sector is alive and well. This book illustrates the great variety of independent buses that have graced Britain's roads, from the early 1970s to the present day.
