Aberdeen Corporation Transport and its Successors, Paperback Book

Aberdeen Corporation Transport and its Successors Paperback


Aberdeen Corporation Transport and its successors, Grampian Transport and FirstBus/First Aberdeen, can trace their history back to 1898 when they commenced tram operation within the city of Aberdeen.

Motor buses were first operated in 1920. During that period all vehicles other than special occasion vehicles wore a livery of Brunswick green and white, being replaced by Lincoln green and cream in 1954.

Although the company ventured into operating rural routes in competition with Northern Scottish during 1986, the company has always been and continues to be the major bus service provider within the City of Aberdeen. The co-authors of this book have concentrated on the fleet from the early sixties up to 1998 when the green livery was replaced by First corporate livery, known within bus enthusiast circles as Barbie livery.

One or two earlier images are included where appropriate.

The three co-authors of this book have all had a long-standing interest in buses, particularly those that have been operated in Aberdeen and the north east of Scotland.
