About the Library


The enactment of the 1985 Transport Act on 26th October 1986 (de-regulation) effectively ended municipal operations throughout the country and this date has been used as a convenient cut-off date for the municipal histories, even though operations may have continued in the private sector after this date. We have also used this date as a convenient cut-off date for most of the companies in the private sector and most of our histories are pre-deregulation when the passenger transport industry was changed forever and many historic names were lost to corporate identity. This site attempts to chronicle the industry up until that time.


All publications on this site are in PDF format - they are readable on most devices including iPad, iPhone, Android and Kindle Fire tablets with the Adobe PDF download.


The body and seating codes used in our publications are the standard PSV Circle codes and can be viewed HERE if you are uncertain about any of them.
