Are you up for a challenge?
The Transport for London Corporate Archives have secured external funding for the
digitisation of the Minute Books of the meetings of the London General Omnibus
Company (L.G.O.C.) from 1855 to 1933. During these years, the L.G.O.C. became the
largest bus company in London, eventually forming part of the London Passenger
Transport Board in 1933.
A team of U3A volunteers has been working on the transcription and indexing of these
Minute Books. We now need extra volunteers to fulfil our ambition of making all the
transcriptions freely available online by the bicentenary of the first London Omnibus in
So, if you want to challenge yourself with deciphering Victorian handwriting, have an
interest in social history or are just passionate about buses, now is your chance to take
part in an interesting project.
