The Glasgow Vintage Vehicle Trust will be opening its Bridgeton Bus Garage to the public on a number of Sundays during 2019. The garage will be open on 7th April, 5th May, 2nd June and 1st September. Visitors will have access to wander round and look at what goes on, seeing vehicle restoration work at all stages. This will include our large display of restored vehicles. Information about each vehicle is displayed on them. GVVT volunteers will also be on hand around the building to help visitors with queries and answer questions

To let visitors experience travel 1960’s style, one of our preserved Glasgow Corporation buses will operate a free hourly service between the garage and George Square in the city centre. The service will depart George Square (at the bus stop between North Hanover Street and North Frederick Street) at 1100, 1200, 1300, 1400 and 1500.

We will have a number of displays from our Archives which chart aspects of Glasgow’s transport history going back over 100 years. There will also be a display from our Back on the Road programme as well as the ever-popular model bus displays from the Model Bus Federation.

The GVVT’s Leyland Leopard single decker will be parked up in the yard for those who want to see what it’s like to sit behind the wheel of a bus.

Our much-celebrated Clippie’s Café will be open serving a range of refreshments and snacks.

Activities for kids include our Lego man treasure hunt. New for this year, there are two other treasure hunt games, one to find the wee coloured buses and another where the eagle-eyed need to spot different details on some of the vehicles in the garage.

Entrance to Bridgeton Bus Garage via Broad Street door. Here visitors will be met by one of our GVVT Volunteers.

Additional Dates: 01 September 2019

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Glasgow Vintage Vehicle Trust Open Sundays are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
