About the Author

Mike Maybin had a varied career, working as a social worker, lecturer and civil servant until his retirement in 2001. His interest in public transport was as an enthusiastic amateur, although like many small boys of that era badly wanted to be a bus driver! He has written several books on aspects of Belfast transport over the last 20 years, but this will be his first covering the entire period from the 1860s to the present.
