North Yorkshire Buses

Availability: In stock

North Yorkshire has long been the meeting point of many major bus operators. United Automobile Services dominated the north, West Riding Automobile Services the south; West Yorkshire Road Car had services in Harrogate and the city of York, while East Yorkshire Motor Services came into York and Scarborough from its home territory.

Privatisation and takeovers meant that municipal transport disappeared from North Yorkshire, but the result was that the county is today served by the country’s four largest bus groups – Stagecoach, Arriva, First and Transdev. Until recently Britain’s largest independent, East Yorkshire Motor Services, now part of the Go Ahead Group, also still operates into the county. There have been many smaller companies over the years providing public transport to the Yorkshire public, though some have vanished. Nevertheless, there is still a great variety of independents to be found.

John Law has been photographing the county’s bus scene over many years and has amassed a vast collection of images, the best of which are presented here – from trams and trolleybuses to today’s low-floor buses.
