Most bus enthusiasts will tell you that their interest really started when they travelled by bus to school. In the days when parents were quite happy to bundle their offspring on to a bus to get to school or other activities, the trip on the bus surrounded by factory, office and shop workers was an exciting experience, and many adults now reminisce about these times when they first discovered that every bus had its unique number, and that not all buses were the same. "By Bus to School" is an anthology of personal reminiscences from some of the best-known names in transport journalism as well as people who are now senior managers in the bus industry. They provide some background about their homes and their schools throughout Britain and describe what it was like travelling to school by bus every day, and how this developed into a hobby and perhaps a career in transport. There is a strong emphasis on capturing the atmosphere of these bus rides, and the book is illustrated with photographs supplied by the authors, augmented with other relevant illustrations. Unashamedly nostalgic, this delightful new book concentrates on capturing the atmosphere of days gone by. Days that many of us will remember fondly, and most will have a memory or a story about something that happened on a bus on the way to school.
