Issue Cover

Buses Magazine  |  The London Bus Vol 2  

This 132-page bookazine is a celebration of the design heritage of London buses, from the late 1920s to the present day.

Supported by a wealth of colour and black and white photographs, it tells the story of the often ground-breaking technical advances that have been designed into the famous red double-deckers and other vehicles built for London. It also pays homage to the design heritage of London Transport and its modern day successor, Transport for London, which ensured not only that buses were fit for purpose but also that they looked elegant, up-to-date and eye-catching, that they form part of the urban architecture.

It is a story that takes us from petrol engines to today's ultra-low emission hybrid electric technology, from bodywork built out of wood to a mixture of lightweight aluminium and composites from the world of aerospace and ocean-going yachts.

If you have to choose a reputable magazine for the industry then there is no better choice than Buses Magazine. Every issue features the most up to date news written with authority by some of the leading industry experts. All of this information is presented in a readable, informative and entertaining way. On top of this, the magazine is completely free from bias and prides itself on being a fiercely independent source of information that is happy to call out flaws in the current industry.

Every Issue of Buses Magazine is packed full of detailed information on everything you need to know about the Bus and Coach industry. You can expect fleet news which keeps you up to date on fleets across the whole of the United Kingdom. Buses Magazine regularly features articles on amazing preservation work being done to restore and maintain some of the grandest and oldest buses around. If you love a bit of history then you can expect to see some great stories on the origins of certain buses and their networks. On top of all this, you can have your say and write in about what you think of how bus transport is being handled.

For the industry professional, there's plenty of informative articles to keep you in the loop of what's happening. You can expect in-depth looks into the bus transport networks in major cities and global news on the hottest goings-on in the industry.

In every issue you can expect all this plus much more unique monthly content tailored to each magazine:

   Buses Magazine Reviewed Monday, February 17, 2020 SUBSCRIBER
I haven't missed an issue since 1973! For the last few years I get it online with Pocketmags. Read it on my phone, always available. I look forward to it every month.
   Excellent mag. Reviewed Thursday, March 20, 2014
So easy to read on here iPad. Also saving some money off rather than buying paper mag from the shop.
   Mixed emotions Reviewed Friday, February 28, 2014
The app itself is quite good, at higher zoom levels the text is considerably losing sharpness, but never to an extend where it would become unreadable. I like the index functions but there's no way too mark and copy text. I like the idea of saving paper and avoiding waste but why is it still that expensive? I wouldn't mind having more adverts in the mobile version as in the printed magazine as most of them are of interest for the bus enthusiast anyway.
