The RIBBLE VEHICLE PRESERVATION TRUST will again be operating its popular ‘Vintage Bus Running Day’ in Morecambe Sunday, May 22nd, 2022 at the Mazuma Stadium (former Globe Arena). Please note that everything noted below is subject to change due to the current COVID 19 Pandemic, and current regulations on social distancing and restrictions on public transport. We do however hope to be able to deliver all of the below.

This is a great day out for all the family, while parents and grandparents can reminisce, the younger passenger can experience to sounds and smells of the past, chirpy conductors and possibly even try their hand with an old ticket machine…

 

With additional easy access to Morecambe from the M6 via the Bay Gateway, you could start your public transport day out with great train links to Barrow in Furness, Skipton and Leeds or catch the bus from Preston or the South Lakes.
