Since its launch in 1949, Buses Magazine has become the UK's biggest selling and most widely read publication covering the bus and coach industries. With monthly sales in excess of 14,000 copies and a readership exceeding 31,000, appreciate the quality editorial that is aimed equally at senior industry professionals and passionately interested enthusiasts.
We seek to carry an up-to-date distillation of the month's most important news at home and overseas, often running stories before weekly trade magazines break them.
Our features cover most areas of interest, looking at vehicle operation, technical developments, ticketing, publicity, vehicle preservation and a review of what's new in the enthusiast marketplace.
We succeed in being fiercely independent, unafraid to criticise aspects of the industry, which we feel could be improved. Passenger's-eye views of bus and coach travel feature regularly, pointing out the good and the not so good. There are a number of features unique to Buses. Our dedicated recruitment section 'Bus Opportunities' carries the latest editorial on the movers and shakers within the industry, called 'Bus People' Unlike other publications, who scatter their vacancies within the Classified pages, Bus Opportunities follows the news pages at the front of the magazine.
Fleet News is now an 18 page section detailing the latest additions to and departures from major and less major bus and coach fleets in the UK and Ireland. This is the section that many readers turn to first and we know that it is also read by manufacturers as a source of market intelligence.
