The city of York stands at the confluence of the rivers Ouse & Foss on flat arable land called the Vale of York, which is bordered to the west of the Penn, to the north east by the North York Moors & to the east by the rolling Yorkshire Wolds. Outside the city are villages and bus operators were needed to provide services linking these local villages & towns with York, especially on market days. Consequently, routes were very rural & besides catering for the traditional market day shoppers, they often carried a considerable volume of passengers to work in York. This book, the follow up to ‘York Independent- Eastern Stage Bus Operators’, tells the story of stage bus companies, including Hopes Motor Services, Hutchinson Brothers, Reliance Motor Services, GE Sykes & Son & Majestic of Cawood, who operated from the West of York. Including over 150 photos, many in colour, it shows how most of the companies covered started out as family-based operators before expanding to offer excursions & private hires.
