Alan Price, one time Transport Officer at Maidstone Borough Council, has passed away.

Alan was Transport Officer from the inception of Maidstone Borough Council in 1974 until the Council’s transport functions were transferred in October 1986 to an arms-length company under the powers of the 1985 Transport Act.

After University, his early career in the bus industry had taken him to Maidstone, where he worked at the Maidstone and District Bus Company. This was part of the BET Group at the time, and he had later postings within the BET group including a spell at the City of Oxford Bus Company.

He had met his wife Jill in his early posting to Maidstone, which may have inspired his return in 1974 to work at Maidstone Borough, during which time he settled with his family in Kingswood.
