Bus design is affected by many factors, among them the availability of new technologies and materials, passenger expectations and demand, government legislation and changing aesthetic values. This history charts the development of design in Britain from 1950 onwards, focusing on 'service buses' - the everyday carriers intended for multiple-stop urban routes - rather than luxury coaches. Copiously illustrated, the book includes photographs of buses in service as well as contemporary manufacturers' or operators' images of the vehicles.
