Four of the remaining five routes in Scotland ceased at the end of March 2016 when the three routes at Lochmaddy and the one at Lochboisdale were withdrawn.  This follows a review of the services provided under contract by the Western Isles Council.  Postbus services started in February 1967 but the number is only five from July 2014 (all in the north of Scotland) following the closure of the Isle of Luing and Portnahaven to Port Ellen services from 19th July 2014.  The Malton postbus service, the last in England, closed on Saturday 28th April 2012. 


For a history of the postbus in the United Kingdom, our book THE POSTBUS HANDBOOK chronicles the introduction and growth of postbus services.

In addition, we have published three updates, POSTBUSES 1998-2004, POSTBUSES 1998-2006 and POSTBUSES 1998-2008.  Each update is priced at Ł5.  All four (Handbook and three updates) together are priced at Ł22 from POVC Sales at 124 Shenstone Avenue, Norton, STOURBRIDGE, West Midlands,  DY8 3EJ.  Please make cheques payable to the “Post Office Vehicle Club”.
