In 1922 Seaview businessman Richard Newell, owner of Seafield Garage, introduced a bus service between Seaview and Ryde using a converted wartime ambulance. At the time the service ran under the name of "Newell's Express Motor Service", but the company was later to become known as Seaview Services. Towards the end of the decade fierce competition on the route made it necessary for Newell to increase and update his fleet of vehicles and also expand his operations to include excursions from the village to various locations in the Isle of Wight. Since 1979, the Robinson family took over Seaview Services and have been running the business successfully ever since we started.
