London Transport Board
1970 The London Transport Board was replaced by a London Transport Executive, to be responsible, under the overall policy control of the Greater London Council, for the day to day operation of the Central (red) buses and the Underground. London Transport's Country (green) bus and Green Line coach services were transferred to London Country Bus Services Ltd., a subsidiary of the National Bus Co. Thus instead of being a nationalised industry it effectively became a subsidiary of the GLC.
