Luton & District was formed in 1986 to operate the former southern depots of United Counties; it was sold by NBC to its employees in 1987 (a first), then sold again in 1994 to British Bus. It now forms part of Arriva, acquiring various local companies on the way, with a mixture of vehicles and liveries. New purchases as well as many second-hand purchases made for an interesting fleet, which carried three liveries in various styles. A strong marketing department ensured many advert buses were operated. Arriva standard livery arrived in 1997.

With a mix of busy urban routes and Green Line coach routes within its portfolio, this book features many previously unpublished images from the former United Counties area.
