MY LIFE AND TIMES IN TRANSPORT

STEPHEN HOWARTH'S WEBSITE


This website comprises of my life and times in the Bus and Coach Industry, and my early years.

I started my career in 1968 with the Oldham Corporation Passenger Transport Department, who's Offices you can see in the picture, (with the clock tower on), and you can read about my career - the ups and downs of it - as I moved through the Industry in various capacities and locations.


There are also pages for my hobby of collecting Tram and Bus Company Cap Badges and Buttons, andPSV Drivers and Conductors Badges (opens in a new page).



I passed my PSV Driving Test on 23rd January 1972. This is the first vehicle I drove.

It was on a trip to Knowsley Safari Park, and Southport.

​The Coach was a Seddon Pennine, with Plaxton bodywork, after SELNEC PTE took over the operation of Oldham's Bus fleet.
