Roaring through the millennium into the 21st century, we find the Transport Act 2000 that allows for increased cooperation between local authorities and operators, something that had not been allowed previously under competition legislation. Increasingly through the 2000s local authorities and county councils are taking responsibility for funding local bus services. The vehicles in use are changing as more and more operators invest in accessible buses. By the beginning of 2008, towards the end of the period covered by this book, 58% of the UK bus fleet is low-floor. Again, we see the demise of some well-known operators, the takeover of some by the bus big groups, and, on the plus side, the rise in importance of others. Illustrated previously unpublished images, this volume portrays the vehicles in use with independent companies through the first decade of the 21st century.
Richard Stubbings has been a keen bus enthusiast since the age of about 5. Although working as a professional musician and teacher, he started getting into bus photography during the 1970s and has over the years amassed a large collection of both bus and train photographs. He lives with his partner in Somerset.
