ALBUM has existed for 35 years and was formed in October 1984 when deregulation of the bus industry was under political consideration.

Our Mission Statement is:

ALBUM exists to provide a forum to exchange best practice among its members and to influence policy, for the promotion of high quality services that encourage more people to travel by bus.

There are around 150 members representing the remaining municipal and independent bus operators in the UK and ALBUM provides a networking opportunity for bus managers, to share best practice and to respond to government consultations affecting the industry. There are separate marketing, engineering, finance and traffic groups which meet regularly.

Every May, the ALBUM Conference provides an excellent opportunity for members and suppliers to come together and talk about the big issues of the day.
