Local bus and tram services in Glasgow were traditionally operated
by the Corporation Transport Department, which had a monopoly in
the city limits from 1930 onwards. This meant buses of the Scottish
Bus Group and others could not pick up passengers once they passed
the city boundary, although passengers could be set down. As the
city expanded, this agreement only covered the boundaries up to
1938, meaning that any development built after this had to be
shared with buses of the Scottish Bus Group and others. A couple of
independents worked into the city. When local bus services in the
UK were de-regulated in 1986, any credible operator was able to
register and run a local bus service, and this is where our story
begins. A myriad of operators have come and gone at a tremendous
pace, bringing a welcome splash of colour to the city and beyond.
Company failures, take-overs and licence revocations have left only
a few stronger companies still serving the city. This book looks at
many of the casualties who have fallen by the wayside over the last
thirty years, many now almost forgotten.
