Located in the Chiltern Hills, Luton has a rich transport history, being home to London Luton Airport and Vauxhall Motors. This south Bedfordshire town has also had an interesting public transport history, most notable being Luton Corporation Transport, Eastern National, United Counties and London Transport. The towns of Luton and Dunstable are linked by one of the longest guided busways in the world. Luton’s Transport takes a look at the development of Luton’s tramway, along with the development of bus and coach services in the Luton, Dunstable and Houghton Regis areas of Bedfordshire.

Review as featured in


Having lived in Luton for my first 20 years until the mid-1970s this book was a must to read. It deals in great depth with the development of bus services in Luton and out to the distant parts of Bedfordshire, London and Hertfordshire. It is well illustrated with many photographs of the buses and coaches from the earliest days to the present day that will delight enthusiasts, especially as they are beautifully printed on gloss paper.

The author has achieved a magnificent job in his research as the story is one of bewildering company changes, takeovers, route changes and route numbering changes often in quick succession. The users of the bus services must have been thoroughly confused at times!

Overall, an interesting read that contributes to the history of one of our towns.
