Yorkshire Joint Omnibus Committees - Super Prestige Number 34
by Geoff Kerr

For forty years the Joint Omnibus Committees in Sheffield, Huddersfield, Halifax and Todmorden, jointly owned by the Corporation and the railways, were a unique feature of UK bus operations. Geoff Kerr describes how and why the railways came to own shareholdings in these four undertakings, how they influenced the development of bus services in Yorkshire and how, following the transfer of the railway shares to the National Bus Company, the Joint Omnibus Committees were wound up during a period of major change in the bus industry.
