Scope and Content

relating to the application of Llandudno UDC to operate the Great Orme Bus Service without conductors. Includes:

Correspondence from Huddersfield Joint Omnibus Commitee supplying information on their application to the Clerk to the Licensing Authority for permission to operate one-man buses [1950 - 51].

A plan ML 117 produced by Huddersfield Corp. Passenger Transport on the arrangement of ticket and change machines - 43 seat one-man bus.

Llandudno UDC applied for permission to operate one-man buses on the Great Orme route from October 1951 [for an experimental period] in order to serve the residents of the area. Later correspondence implies that this original application was refused on the grounds that major alterations would be necessary to ensure the driver had easy access to the entrance door.

The Council reapplied for permission to operate two recently acquired buses on the G.O. Service without conductors and this time permission was granted. Up to 1966, permission to continue running one man buses had to be renewed every 2 years, but then regulations were amended and permanent permission was granted subject to certain conditions.
