Metrobus is to celebrate its 30th anniversary on September 24. To mark the occasion the Go-Ahead Group-owned operator is planning events to be held over the weekend of September 21/22.

On Saturday, September 21, the doors of the firm’s three depots – Orpington, Croydon and Crawley – will be opened for a chance to see behind the scenes. Lots of activities are being planned so it is anticipated there will be plenty for all the family to see and do.

A second event is currently being planned for the following day, although details remain to be confirmed.

Charlotte Bruce, the company’s Marketing Manager, told CBW: “We would be pleased to hear from any owners of relevant preserved buses who would be interested in bringing their vehicle along to form static displays at the depots. We’d like to include vehicles which previously operated on routes, or in areas, which are now served by Metrobus. If you are interested in bringing your bus along please e-mail us at [email protected] with details of your vehicle. Stallholders wishing to find out more are also invited to contact us.”

Further details will be added to the Metrobus website at in due course.
