• Lincolnshire Road Car has become the 59th National Bus Company operating subsidiary to be privatised. It has been bought for an undisclosed sum by another ex-NBC company, Yorkshire Traction.
Road Car serves the whole of Lincolnshire, South Humberside and the Newark area from its head office and depot in Lincoln, and smaller depots in Boston, Gainsborough, Grimsby, Grantham, Holbeach, Louth, Newark, Scunthorpe and Skegness. It has a fleet of 172 buses, mini-buses and coaches and a staff of 320.
Yorkshire Traction will retain the Road Car name and run the company as a fully autonomous subsidiary. Present managing director Paul Hill will continue in that role, supported by fleet engineer Roy Godfrey and commercial manager Steve Sanderson. YT chairman Frank Carter also becomes chairman of Road Car.
