This is the second encyclopaedic work of reference prepared by the Roads and Road Transport History Association and follows the Companion to British Road Haulage History. It spans almost two centuries of the development of British road passenger transport, from horses and the first mechanically powered trams and buses to hybrids and hydrogen buses; and from stage coaches to motorway express services. The volume comprises some 850 entries, covering all forms of public passenger transport by road: buses, coaches, trams, taxis, as well as minor modes such as rickshaws and sedan chairs, approached from many different perspectives, including vehicles and technology, operators, services, legislation, regulation, key individuals, the industry's customers and cultural aspects; and technologies in use and developed during the period covered. Coverage of operating businesses includes the public and private sectors, British and foreign ownership, company, municipal, nationalised and privately owned businesses.
