With each issue of Buses, I’m reminded of the long history of the publication and how much it has meant to readers over the years.

I was delighted to see that some readers remain who have bought every single issue since the magazine’s launch as Buses Illustrated in 1949, and it has been fascinating to read how many of you first discovered the title and developed your interest in the industry.
