About Buses Magazine

The World's Biggest Selling Buses Magazine

The UK’s highest circulation and most widely read magazine covering the bus and coach industries, Buses is written for and read by an audience that extends from senior industry professionals to passionately interested enthusiasts.

Buses carries the latest news written with authority on serious issues in a readable and entertaining format, and offers the most comprehensive photographic coverage of new developments. It succeeds in being fiercely independent and unafraid to criticise aspects of the industry that could be improved.

Unique to Buses is Fleet News, a comprehensive section detailing the latest changes to bus and coach fleets in the UK and Ireland.

What The Industry Say

“If you have to choose a magazine of record for the industry, then Buses is the one. In compiling our monitoring of the industry over the years, Buses has long been a primary source: its concise, comprehensive reporting of the industry news every month is an invaluable source of reference. As an occasional reader since the 1950s, and a regular reader since joining the industry 40 years ago, I can attest to the magazine’s central role in the community life of the industry.”
Chris Cheek, managing director 2FM Ltd

“I have been a reader of Buses for almost 50 years. While eagerly awaiting each issue for the latest news and pictures, I carefully retain every copy to form an ever-growing reference work, to which I refer regularly when researching transport matters. It’s a journal that successfully balances current issues, within the context of past events when necessary, covering stories increasingly rapidly after they occur.

With so much information now available on-line, I find Buses continues as a tangible media form where all the important topics appear, complementing other sources by providing very detailed information, and in-depth analysis often not found elsewhere.”

Martin Curtis, managing director, Bath Bus Company

“Buses is unique amongst our industry’s productions: authoritative, opinionated, international, yet focused on what we do. Above all, Buses is a great read.”
Mark Nodder, managing director, Wright Group
