Kingston upon Hull Corporation Transport set about replacing its trams with trolleybuses in the 1930s, but the war meant that trams did not finish until 1945. Motorbuses took over all operations in 1965. The fine blue and white buses of the municipality were a feature of the city until 1994, when the stripes of the Stagecoach Group began to be applied.

The area’s other major operator, East Yorkshire Motor Services, can trace its history back to 1919, though the name was not registered until 1926. The company’s buses were soon to be found throughout the East Riding, with the double-deck vehicles easily recognisable due to having specially profiled roofs to pass through Beverley Bar. EYMS became part of the National Bus Company and was later purchased by its management team. It soon became the UK’s largest independent. The company was sold to the Go-Ahead Group in 2018. Today, the smart and modern fleet can be seen throughout the county and beyond.

A few other operators have been seen in East Yorkshire, with Lincolnshire Road Car serving Goole and crossing the Humber Bridge. Various small independent companies have also featured, most notable of which was Connor & Graham of Easington.
