Huddersfield and a number of other towns in the area did not completely abandon the idea of trams, but went on to adopt
Trolley Buses. These were basically an electric bus that the driver steered in a conventional manor that used the existing tram system overhead cables for power. The trolley buses were
clean, quiet and quick but by the 1960's low oil prices plus the cost of maintaining the overhead equipment saw the end of the trolley bus era, the last Huddersfield trolley bus service
taking place on 13 July 1968.
