Publisher Comments:

Over 300 photos combine with insightful captions to present a complete history of the intercity, charter, tour and sightseeing bus industry throughout the 20th Century. Each of the 11 chapters provides an overview of each important time period, including the development of styling and paint schemes, comfort, passenger seating, length/width, safety, engines, brakes, tires, transmissions, and the influence of road conditions, Federal regulations, national parks, tourism and entertainment, and international influences. High-quality photos illustrate a vast array of bus manufacturers and bus models, including the models that were used extensively as well as some that were unusual. Represented are many interesting bus companies, their bus routes, and other interesting facts.

Synopsis:

Over 300 photos combine with insightful captions to present a complete history of the intercity, charter, tour and sightseeing bus industry throughout the 20th Century. 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.
