City of Oxford Motor Services

The City of Oxford and District Tramways Company Limited was formed in 1879 to operate horse drawn trams in the city and surrounding area, and this system continued in this form until 1914 when motor buses replaced the trams. The tramway system was never electrified due to opposition from local residents.

Further buses were put into service and the now familiar company name was adopted in 1921. Control of the company passed to British Electric Traction which owned the company until 1968 when its bus interests were sold to the Government which formed the National Bus Company.

The vehicles operated were mainly of A.E.C. manufacture and the rather spledid livery was red, dark maroon and duck egg.

Some paintings are already completed and are awaiting scanning and uploading which I plan to do very shortly. Other paintings are nearing completion and will be included at a later date.
