Privatising London's Buses

By Roger Torode

Between 1985 and 1995, the biggest change took place in London's buses since the formation of London Transport in 1933.  The operation was reorganised into smaller, local companies, services were put out to competitive tender, and ownership of the bus fleet passed from public ownership into private hands.  Fortunes were made, and jobs were lost, but the overall result was a markedly better bus service at far lower cost.  The style and operation of London's buses, and its performance, changed radically.
This book tells the story of those changes, based on the personal experiences and reflections of those involved.
