There is something for most tastes in the 2018 Buses Yearbook, which follows the format that has characterised it for 47 of its 55 years, with a mix of articles and photofeatures, both historic and contemporary, covering many subjects.
Among the articles, Alan Millar considers the impact of the Transport Act 1968 and the creation of the British Leyland Motor Corporation. Half a century on and the National Bus Company, Scottish Transport Group, passenger transport executives and BLMC have all been and gone. In many cases there is little sign that they ever existed, although modern buses still follow the layouts dictated by the New Bus Grant.
