A set of six issued by West Berlin in 1973 showed a horse-bus, trolley-bus and motor buses from 1907 onwards. In 1965 Cuba issued a set of eight stamps depicting buses and returned to this theme in 1977.

Guernsey produced a set of four in 1979 devoted to public transport. In 1998, Jersey celebrated the 75th anniversary of its Motor Transport Company with a set of six . Malta released a set of four showing buses in 1996.

By far the best coverage of public transport has been by the Isle of Man which issued a set of four stamps in 1976 and included a horse bus of 1895. In June 1999 a set of six depicting island buses over the past 70 odd years were issued.
