Merseyside is an area with a colourful bus history. Even with the municipal colours long gone and the post-deregulation mix of operators replaced with the dominance of Arriva and Stagecoach, the ten years between 2010 and 2020 are not without their variety. The Merseyside bus network is made up of a mixture of commercial and part or fully tendered routes, which lends itself to an array of vehicle types and operators, some of which no longer trade.In this book Simon Ackers charts the changing vehicles, liveries, and operators over that period, looking at how the bus operators have responded to the implementation of DDA requirements, emerging technologies and emissions standards, and improved quality to encourage passenger growth. The author worked in the local bus industry during this time and the photographs are each accompanied by an insightful and detailed caption.
