The last three decades of the twentieth century saw dramatic changes in the bus industry with deregulation of bus services nationally in October 1986 in the provincial areas. Visually London seemed to stay the same with the buses still operating in the customary red liveries which all cherished from childhood. This book sets out to show how the vehicles moved forward from the traditional layout of rear platform and open half cab to the introduction of one man buses with their front entrances. The effects of deregulation are shown with dynamic colour schemes especially with the Bexleybus blue and cream colour scheme. With the passing of years we progress to the now familiar single deck buses, and also cover various other transport experiments.

Whilst not being employed in the world of public transport, the subject has played a significant part of John Bishop's life through the 'eyes of the camera'. From an early age in the mid-1950s through to the present day he has sought to record the history of buses, trolleybuses and trams in both colour and cine film progressing to video today. Much of his knowledge has been expanded into seventeen published books.
