• The definitive history of the subject
• Written by a noted South Wales transport historian

This book takes a chronological look at the passenger transport of Newport from horse drawn trams of the 19th century to electric buses of 2020. Newport's bus fleet went from being a predominantly double-deck operation in the 1930s to one of largely single-deckers by the mid-1950s. Leyland Titans and later Atlanteans dominated the fleet for some time, but from 1971 Newport turned to Scania for many years. The informative text is embellished with many comprehensive data tables, and more than 260 black/white and colour photographs.
