Independent Buses around Stoke-on-Trent (Amberley)

2 In Stock

In this book, author Cliff Beeton looks at the plethora of independent operators that have, alongside PMT, provided bus services in and around Stoke-on-Trent. Operators featured here include Berresfords, Stoniers and Turners, who were later swallowed up by the ever-expanding PMT, and the likes of Procters, Pooles Coachways and Stevensons, who eventually fell by the wayside or were sold to larger groups.

Local coach operators such as Bakers of Biddulph, Copelands, Scraggs, Ladyline and Stanways expanded into buses after deregulation, alongside new starters like Knotty Bus, Wardle Transport, D&G Bus, RML Travel, Midland Classic, Stantons of Stoke, and Select Bus Services. These all added further variety to the local bus scene.

With previously unpublished images throughout, this book celebrates the variety of buses in and around the city. Images cover the period from the 1980s through to the present day. Each photograph is accompanied by a caption and an introduction to independent operators in Stoke is also included. 96 pages.
