Bus & Coach Buyer is not a publication aimed at the enthusiast market. It is a weekly trade title that exists as a medium for operators, dealers and manufacturers to buy and sell buses and coaches, and for manufacturers and suppliers of related products and services to promote their offerings. The majority of our pages will always be taken up with advertisements because of this.
Our editorial is designed to interest bus and coach operators of all sizes and from all sectors. To this end our pages contain the latest news, vehicle launches and evaluations, operator features, manufacturer profiles, dealer articles, show reports, conference reports, products releases and a host more information, including recent deliveries. From time to time we also carry articles on defunct manufacturers, rallies such as Showbus, museums and overseas operations if we believe they will be of interest to our core readers. Though our focus ison the UK, the increasing globalisation of bus and coach manufacture takes our team around the globe in search of the stories. We attend and cover the major European trade shows, and in addition to this have also reported first hand on events as far afield as China, the USA, Canada, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Mexico.
We are pleased to be sponsoring Showbus because in doing so we are supporting the many operators and manufacturers who take part in and enjoy the event. At the same time we are inviting people other than operators to take out a subscription to Bus & Coach Buyer.
We regularly receive requests from people outside the operating industry who would like to obtain regular copies of Bus & Coach Buyer, but do not qualify for free inclusion on the list through holding a full operator's licence. In the past we have declined such enquiries but have reconsidered this stance on a trial basis. Those who want to can now obtain the latest issue every week instead of scrounging old ones off a local operator.
By subscribing to Bus & Coach Buyer you won't get full details on the rally and preservation scene, but you will be right up to date with the latest vehicle developments in the UK market and gain a closer insight into what is happening within the industry.
