York Independents: Western Operators
York Independents: Western Stage Bus Operators Britain's Buses Series, Volume 4
Outside York are many small country villages and bus operators were needed to provide services linking these local villages and towns with York. This book tells the story of stage bus companies, including Hopes Motor Services, Hutchinson Brothers, Reliance Motor Services, G E Sykes & Son and Majestic of Cawood, who operated from the west of York.
Including over 150 photographs, it shows how most of the companies covered started out as family-based operators running a local service before expanding to offer excursions and private hires, until changes to the way of life eventually killed off the majority of them.
