Leicester City Transport. Published 1972 by East Midlands Area Omnibus Enthusiats Society in Leicester.

The history of transport is largely one of technological innovation. Advances in technology have allowed people to travel farther, explore more territory, and expand their influence over larger and larger areas. Even in ancient times, new tools such as foot coverings, skis, and snowshoes lengthened the distances that could be travelled. As new inventions and discoveries were applied to transport problems, travel time decreased while the ability to move more and larger loads increased.

The position of Lord Mayor of Leicester is a mainly ceremonial post, being the title of the chairman of the Leicester City Council, elected annually by the members of the council. The role of Lord Mayor is in many ways similar to that carried out by the Speaker in the House of Commons. From the Middle Ages until 1928 the title was simply Mayor of Leicester. Until the 19th century, the mayors were usually elected annually by the Corporation of Leicester.

Centenary: Our beginning. Leicester is conveniently located in the centre of England and is within easy reach of several major airports. There are also direct trains from London St Pancras, meaning that you can travel from Brussels or Paris on the Eurostar with just one change of train. Heathrow Airport is the largest UK airport serving over 180 destinations in over 90 countries. The easiest way to reach your accommodation is by taxi. There is a taxi rank at the bus station, and taxis are metered.

On 7 October 1984, Leicester City Transport became Leicester CityBus. David Harvey brings this history of Leicester's buses to life with a comprehensive collection of period images and a wealth of information about each bus. The text evokes and pays tribute to bygone times, with thoughtful details about the historic buildings and cultural landmarks that recur in the photographs Added to basket.

Mapping also illustrates the development of Country services between provincial towns, especially major hubs like Manchester and Birmingham, and commuter traffic around large conurbations. Overall the maps and figures point to substantial change in destinations and the structure of the coach network. Country coach services increased after the 1790s to complement the London services.

Leicester is one of the oldest cities in England, with a history going back at least two millennia. The native Iron Age settlement encountered by the Romans at the site seems to have developed in the 2nd or 1st centuries BC. Little is known about this settlement or the condition of the River Soar.

First Leicester services cover the more local (city) destinations, those operated by Arriva can also be useful for reaching areas just outside Leicester, as well as city destinations. First Services leave from a variety of points in the city centre; most Arriva services depart from St Margaret's Bus Station. Previous city council policies led to the development of well signposted, well designed cycle-tracks: some of these are now in need of repair and upkeep, but the network remains. The city centre of Leicester has a vibrant and friendly atmosphere along with many department stores and a large shopping centre called Highcross (formerly 'The Shires'), off High Street.
