A HISTORY OF EASTBOURNE`S BUSES ISBN: 9780752458038

by Mick Hymans

As home of the oldest motor bus company in the world, Eastbourne forms an excellent basis for a detailed analysis of bus transport. The history of that company, latterly Eastbourne Buses Ltd, is charted here from its beginnings in the early twentieth century up to the present day controversy of the takeover by Stagecoach. Author Mick Hymans is uniquely placed to write about life on board Eastbourne's buses, with thirty eight years' service as a bus driver in the town. He details everything from the 'tomfoolery' of the early days as a conductor to the advent of the one person operated buses. Using previously unpublished photographs from the company's archive, this book offers a powerful insight into the operation of a bus service in a changing society, focusing on the camaraderie, personalities and real life stories of those men and women who work 'on the buses'.
