By 1938, the tram era in Ashton-under-Lyne was over. After the Second World War, the Ashton Corporation took its first delivery of six Crossley DD42/3s which replaced earlier Crossley vehicles purchased in the mid-1930s. In November 1954, the familiar peacock blue and cream livery was introduced. Over the following years, bus routes came and went and in January 1967 the last new bus route to be opened by Ashton Corporation was to the new housing estate at Gambrel Bank. Two years later in November 1969 the South East Lancashire and North East Cheshire Passenger Transport Executive was formed. This swallowed up the Ashton Corporation, and the peacock blue and cream buses gradually disappeared, bringing to an end a total of 67 years of Ashton Corporation Transport.
