Chesterfield Area Timetable Archive

To assist those researching the history of bus services in the Chesterfield area, we are gradually adding links to scans of some of the bus timetables produced by the various bus companies that operated in North Derbyshire

The timetables below are for services that operated prior to 1981 – please click on the picture of the cover below to see the timetable.

For timetables produced after 1981, please click here.

Initially, the majority of the timetables on this page will mainly be from the 1970s, but we have also included a few from the post war period. If you are able to assist us by providingother  timetables for the years prior to 1981 that we can scan without damaging, then we would be very interested to hear from you – please contact the Transpire Webmaster at transpirebus@gmail.com if you are able to help.

Please note that to keep the keep the size of the PDF files down, indexes, adverts, conditions of carriage and timetables of services outside the Chesterfield / Peak District area have not been scanned. Please also be aware that timetables marked # in the description are held on other organisation’s websites, so clicking on the picture of the timetable will take you directly to that website.
