Bedfordshire Independent Buses

Availability: Out of stock

Author: Gary Seamarks

Though they serve one of England’s smallest counties, the smaller operators in Bedfordshire contain some very interesting vehicles. For many years they were mostly employed on private hires and contract work, but nowadays the majority of their income comes from school contracts and tendered contracts for the local councils, with some commercial work. The vast majority of the vehicles operated were new elsewhere and had been acquired for less demanding work. Two operators also ran services along the new Luton Busway. Private hires and coaching now take a back seat, with some operators no longer undertaking this type of work. Luton Airport provides an additional source of interest.

Featuring colour photography throughout, this book records the scene from the 1980s onwards, including some names that are no longer around.
