services were initially operated without specific Parliamentary authority but the Great
North of Scotland Railway Order, 1906, under the Private Legislation (Scotland) Act, 1899,
granted such powers. These powers were taken over by the LNER, who obtained more general
powers for road motor operation under the London & North Eastern Railway (Road
Transport) Act, 1928.
On 15 August 1929, the LNER and LMSR reached agreement whereby the railway companies would relinquish their passenger road services in favour of one of the companies in the Scottish Motor Traction Co. Ltd. group (SMT). The transfer took effect in stages during 1930.
The dates quoted are those from whence a service commenced or ceased, i.e. the first date when there was no service. This is in line with normal railway record practice. Route take-overs are quoted from the date the new operator took over.
The service routes can be found by using the links above. There are links back to this page or the site map from each individual route listing. (If you have any comments please contact the webmaster).
