The Lost Liveries of Melbourne’s Route Buses


“Gone but not Forgotten – Lost Liveries of Melbourne’s Route Buses” is a valuable and informative resource that will preserve the richness of the Victorian bus industry in perpetuity.

This book perfectly illustrates the story of the Victorian bus industry as an exemplar of commitment to staff, to community, to public safety, to private enterprise and family businesses.

From humble beginnings post World War One, through rapid growth in the 1950’s, stoushes with the State Government in the 1980’s and 1990’s and today, to the inevitable operator consolidation that we see of late, Tony Finneran has masterfully crafted this historical pictorial account that crystalises the contribution many bus families have made to residents and visitors alike over generations.

Tony’s book is sure to be enjoyed.
