In Stock

The Gosport and Fareham Omnibus Company originated in 1878 with the Gosport Street Tramways, which was one of the many Provincial Tramway subsidiary systems in Portsmouth. The last trams ran in 1929 and the company changed its name to the Gosport and Fareham Omnibus Company. The replacement buses were mainly three axle Chevrolets. These were replaced by AEC Regals and Regents, the majority of which were famously still in service up to the early 70s.

Between 1947 and 1954, all fleet additions were new, initially AEC and later, Guy On 1st January 1970, the bus operations were sold to the National Bus Company. It remained leaf green when H&D became poppy red. After deregulation the company was bought from NBC by its management and employees and became Peoples Provincial. First Group acquired the company in the 1990s.
