On The (Old) Buses

Recommended Posts

Does anyone think that the buses were better run before deregulation and cheaper to use, also did Sheffield have Leyland buses?

Yes there were hundreds of Leylands around - in the 50's anyway.

Seem to remember that before regulation busses were packed most of the time and affordable to all After you could have one to yourself at times.

Buses were packed in the50's because nobody could afford a car, only the well off could.

On the side of the 'Lodge Moor' buses, the Sheffield Coat of Arms is not there, when did that practise end?

Remember Sheffield bus services in the past, look at them now and think where we will be in 20 years time. FRIGHTENING for folks without cars.

In 1928 it was decided that only 'A' fleet vehicles would carry the Coat of Arms,'B' and 'C' fleets were Joint Omnibus and Railways respectively and there appears to be no change to this until Bus deregulation and the end of the Sheffield Transport era many of us remember.
