Historyedit

The Yorkshire Traction Group was a large independent bus operator that had grown out of bus deregulation in the UK The Yorkshire Traction company had been privatised in 1987 as one of the National Bus Company, and from its base in Barnsley, as the Traction Group had gone on to expand its operations across West Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and Tayside, as well as buying up small operators in Sheffield

Yorkshire Terrier was an independent post-deregulation bus company that had been formed in 1988 operating in Sheffield, and had also expanded itself with acquisition of some smaller operators within Sheffield

In 1995, Terrier was bought by the Traction Group, and by 1998 all of their combined operations in Sheffield had been brought under the Terrier green and white identity although trading as Andrews of Sheffield, one of Traction's Sheffield acquisitions

On 14 December 2005 Stagecoach Group purchased the Yorkshire Traction Group, and by May 2006 the Terrier fleet was being converted into the Stagecoach Sheffield identity1
