Fans of bus travel down the ages have a unique opportunity to take a ride back in time at the weekend.

This year’s Vintage Bus Day takes place on Sunday, April 22, from 11am to 5pm, with a chance to travel on up to 19 vintage vehicles including a 1958 Middlesbrough Dennis.

The event, organised by the Teesside-based 500 Group, features five routes between the Transporter Bridge and Stockton High Street and Yarm, calling at Stand 13 in Middlesbrough Bus Station, and a vintage country bus tour into North Yorkshire.

Passengers travel free, with souvenir descriptive programmes with timetables available on the day for £4 from the Control Bus at the Transporter, where there will also be stalls selling transport memorabilia.

A new feature for 2012 will be two tours by vintage minibus of the various bridges across the Tees with a guide to the latest developments in the area.

Middlesbrough Deputy Mayor Councillor Dave Budd said: “The Vintage Bus Day showcases these magnificent vehicles in operation, and attracts enthusiasts from all over the UK.

“It’s just as interesting for local people for whom these buses were a part of daily life – Sunday promises to be a great day out for all the family and a fascinating trip down memory lane.”
