Description Aldershot's first buses arrived during 1906. They were operated by the Aldershot & Farnborough Motor Omnibus Company Ltd. They ran a service between Aldershot and Farnborough using two second-hand Milnes-Daimler's acquired from Hastings. New services were pioneered, and the fleet increased to five vehicles. Expansion was vital for the small operator. New capital arrived when the British Electric Traction Company bought out Aldershot & Farnborough in 1912. A new company was formed and named the Aldershot & District Traction Co. Ltd. The new company rapidly expanded its network of service in and around the Surrey and Hampshire borders. In 1914 'A&D' was trying to get a foothold in Guildford. They gained licences to run services in competition with Guildford & District, a company formed by bus manufacturers Dennis Bros and Walter Flexman-French the influential bus pioneer. The Guildford and District operations soon fell into the hands of Aldershot & District.
