York Independents: Western Operators

This book tells the story of York’s local bus companies including Hopes’ Motor Services, Hutchinson Brothers, Reliance Motor Services, G E Sykes & Son and Majestic of Cawood, which once operated from the west of York serving many small country villages and linking them with each other and the city of York.

With more than 150 photographs, it illustrates how these companies began as family businesses, each running a local service before expanding to offer excursions and private hires. Social and economic changes brought the demise of each.
