Epsom Bus Garage in south west London will open its doors to members of the public later this month for a day of rides and activities.
Visitors will have the chance to take a free trip on vintage buses, view heritage vehicles including a B-type bus, and talk to the Metropolitan Police Safer Transport Team and see the historic police motorcycle collection.
Mike Weston, TfL’s Director of Buses, said: “Buses are a vital daily service for millions and one that links homes to jobs, schools and hospitals in every part of the Capital.
“They are the backbone, and often the forgotten workhorses, of London’s transport network and these open days are a great opportunity for the public to come and learn more about their local bus services.”
Steve Whiteway, Managing Director at garage owners Epsom Coaches, said: “We hold an Open Day every five years and this is a great opportunity to give everyone a chance to see what makes us tick.
“We look forward to a very special day and to raising money for The Epsom & Ewell Community Fund, our nominated charity. There will be something for everyone, from nostalgia to technology and plenty of fun in between.”
Other London bus garages opening their doors on Saturdays this year are Camberwell (5 September) and Willesden (19 September). There will also be open days held at Barking and Westbourne Park garages with dates to be confirmed later in the year.
