Manchester Buses

Availability: In stock

Author: Paul Williams

The first bus service in Manchester was a horse bus that started running in 1824. However, the history of bus operations in the city really starts in 1906, when Manchester Corporation Tramways began to run motor bus services. In 1929, as the motor buses became increasingly important, Manchester Corporation Tramways became Manchester Corporation Transport. In November 1969, Manchester transport became part of SELNEC, the Passenger Transport Executive (PTE) for the North West.

In this book, Paul Williams tells the story of Manchester’s buses from the 1960s onwards, using both his own photographs and material from the collections of the Museum of Transport, Greater Manchester. This will be a trip down memory lane for all those who remember riding an orange SELNEC bus.
