One of the most distinctive features of London is its transit network—and no part of that is more visually memorable than the buses that ply the narrow, winding lanes of the bustling modern city. This book offers a comprehensive social history of the London bus, showing how it has worked in, and for, the capital for the past century and a half. It covers the design, development, and operations of buses in the city and the surrounding suburbs, and explores the way that the bus has shaped London transportation and society both. The result is an accessible, engaging history, perfect for transit buffs.
