Each of the 11 chapters provides an overview, from the early 1900s when the first short-distance buses were enlarged automobiles or homemade bodies on truck chassis with open or canvas tops, through the development of today's long-distance, air-conditioned, styled buses that are handicap accessible. High-quality photos illustrate a vast array of bus manufacturers and bus models. All the important names including ACF-Brill, Aerocoach, CCF-Brill, C.D. Beck, Eagle, Fageol, Flexible, Fitzjohn, Gar Wood, General Motors, Greyhound, Kenworth, Mack, Motor Coach Industries, Prevost, Reo, Trailways, Western Flyer, White, Yellow Coach, and many more are featured in over 300 historic photographs, most of which have never been published before.
