Remembering Rhondda: The Bus Company that Helped Win a War


The Rhondda Transport company can trace its roots back to the early days of trams and trolleybuses. But while its trams liberated the people of the Rhondda valleys, its trolleybus system was a complete disaster. The arrival of motorbuses revolutionised the way the proud people of Rhondda travelled. They took them further and faster while raising the company's profile. Rhondda Transport began with a mix of vehicles but it fell in love with AEC Regents and Leyland Tiger Cubs, buying more of these vehicles than any other. Rhondda laboured under the shadow of its much larger BET stablemate Western Welsh, a company into which it was eventually absorbed. What cannot be overlooked is the part the company is acknowledged as playing in the war effort. This is definitely a book for the bus enthusiast and Rhondda folk alike. It is a must for AEC and Leyland enthusiasts and as the first ever book on the company it is also a worthy partner in the trilogy of South Wales BET fleet books produced by Bryngold Books.
