Ripon's first Motor Omnibus

Date: 1905

This was one of two buses operated by the North Eastern Railway Company, who had three such vehicles built for use in the Beverley area. However, NER decided they needed even more powerful engines at Beverley, so two of the originals came to Ripon. The buses ran from the railway station to the Market Square throughout the year, and in the summer the run was extended to the park gates at Studley. The fare from the station to Studley was 9d. Note the rear door, the solid tyres and the vertical ladder to enable the driver to reach his seat. The number plate reads BT13.
