The Far Side
Somewhere beyond the security perimeter fences of airports and ferry terminals, lies another world of buses.   These vehicles operate services for passengers and employees and rarely stray outside their environment.   They live their lives on the far side.
Above right: Before the Seacat service moved to Troon, Western used to provide buses to shuttle passengers from the terminal building to the Seacat at Stranraer.   Fleetline SR879 (ECS879V) is seen behind the barbed wire in September 1996.

Above: The ferry companies at Calais provide buses to carry foot passengers from the terminal to the ships.   P&O 6413QX62 and SeaFrance 4950QR62, both Renault PR100's, are seen landside in July 1995 at Calais.   These vehicles are also used to provide a free service to the town centre.
Above right: Nice Airport is the only building site in Europe to have its own runway.   ANT 171AHV06, a standard Renault/Heuliez, is seen airside at Terminal 1 in June 2000.
