The most iconic buses at Lincolnshire Road Transport Museum that some of you may remember

Lincolnshire’s buses have been running since the 1920s and grown in popularity since. Whether its been short trip through the city, or a service from further afield bringing residents to and from Lincoln, people in the county, can remember a journey on the iconic cream and green coloured buses. Some services outside the city boundaries were operated by Lincolnshire Roadcar – which is today known as StageCoach – and within Lincoln, the Lincoln Corporation took charge of services.

Buses began to grow in popularity ever since the 1920s when it overtook the city’s tram system as the popular way to get into the city centre. Lincolnshire Live visited Lincolnshire Road Transport Museum in North Hykeham to take pictures and find out about some of the county’s iconic buses from the past – some of which you may remember on the roads. Mike Gallagher, vice-chair of the Lincolnshire Vintage Vehicle Society who run the museum said: “Buses in the city eventually replaced the tram system in Lincoln because the buses were less limited.

They could go up hill and they could go outside of the city to bring people in.

“We have some buses here that people in Lincolnshire will remember.

Hopefully later this summer they can come in and see them first-hand.”
