The Glasgow Vintage Vehicle Trust will be opening its Bridgeton Bus Garage to the public on various Sundays during 2020. 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.
THIS PARTICULAR OPENING IS OUR FAMILY AND COMMUNITY EVENT WHERE WE HAVE MANY ADDITIONAL ATTRACTIONS ON SHOW FOR THE VISITORS, INCLUDING LIVE MUSIC.
To let visitors experience travel 1960’s style, one of our preserved Glasgow Corporation buses will operate a free service between the garage and Killermont Street and George Square in the city centre.
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.
Our much celebrated Clippie’s Café will be open serving a range of refreshments and snacks and our GVVT branded merchandise and books will also be available.
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 Prices remain unchanged since 2018 at Adult £5.00, Child/OAP £3.00, Family £12.00. Pay at the door by cash or card.
Entrance to Bridgeton Bus Garage via Broad Street door. Here visitors will be met by one of our GVVT Volunteers.
