The site of sites for all types of bus information from around the world is The Bus Station. As well as listing websites for operators, manufacturers and enthusiasts there is dedicated section for model buses.
If you are interested in model bus fleet operation I would suggest you join the Model Bus Federation. The Members' section of the website includes a discussion forum where queries relating to bus modelling can be posed and usually answered. The Federation publishes a monthly full-colour magazine covering all aspects of bus modelling and, for an additional subscription, a quarterly Supplement for those modelling fictional fleets.
British Model Buses is a valuable source of news and archive records of commercially produced die-cast models of British buses. Oriental Model Buses provides a similar service for the Hong Kong scene.
Other model fleet operators with their own websites include Crossways, Eldorado Motors, London & Country, Red Rover Buses, and southwestbus.
Turning to real buses, the Oxford & Chilterns Bus Page provides an enthusiast's view of bus news in and around Oxford. If your interests lie in older vehicles you should, of course, visit the Oxford Bus Museum.
The main source of bus timetable information throughout Britain is Traveline. However, many of the major operators in the area fictionally served by Padbus have their own websites. These include Heyfordian Travel, the Oxford Bus Company, Pulhams Coaches, Stagecoach and Thames Travel.
