Buses was published as Buses Illustrated from 1949 until 1968. The current editor is Alan Millar, based in Scotland. It also produces a yearbook, published in August every year for the next year. Buses is published monthly on the third Thursday of each month.

Sam Clark has been working on the title since March 2013 and really made the title his own. He is the man you contact if advertising or promotional ideas are needed.

A sister magazine, Buses Focus, featured more in-depth articles, although this dual format was dropped after a rationalisation of the bus industry and for publishing cost reasons, in favour of larger main magazine issues.
