The S-type could carry 54 passengers, then making it the largest bus in London. It was not as comfortable as a tram ride, as the trams had covered top decks and the solid rubber tyres, as seen on the bus, didn't provide a particularly smooth journey.
S742, entered service in 1923 at Tottenham and one of 928 built by the Associated Equipment Company for the London General Omnibus Company. S742 was among the last of the S-types to be running, when service ended in 1933. It was also one of the last vehicles of this type to be constructed, which can be established by its 'turned under' side panels.
