Gosport and Fareham
The Provincial Tramways Company should have started services in Gosport in 1878. However, the first service from the ferry to Anns Hill did not begin until 1882. The trams were horse-drawn and the route was extended to Brockhurst, Elson Road.
Around the beginning of the twentieth century, the original name of Gosport Street Tramways was changed to Gosport and Fareham Tramways. New routes were added, including one to Fareham railway station.
Electric trams were introduced in 1905 and a power station and tram shed built at Hoeford. The company's first buses were used on the route to Lee-on-Solent.
In the 1930s trams were abandoned in favour of buses and the company changed its name again, this time to the Gosport and Fareham Omnibus Company.
In 1970 the operation was taken over by the National Bus Company. Although it continued to run separately, management of the company was transfered to Hants & Dorset.
With the break-up of Hants & Dorset, Provincial was given the Fareham services of Hants & Dorset. The company was then sold to its management and employees, trading as People's Provincial. The company was later bought by the First Group.
