The Conservative government's Transport Act of 1980 made the deregulation of bus services possible in Britain. Limited trials began a year later and the policy was adopted nationally (with the exception of Greater London) in 1986. With over 180 colour images of buses operating around the country, this photographic survey charts the changes of a decade that saw large operators broken up and sold and new companies emerging to challenge the council-run services.
