A transport museum will be celebrating 100 years since the area’s first blue and cream buses came on the road this weekend.
Buses at the Transport Museum, Wythall, will be gracing the streets again on both Sunday and Monday, reproducing the Bank Holidays of the past when buses were the way most people got about.
“A high spot will be a ride out on the old open platform buses that used to work the Outer Circle,” said Malcolm Keeley, Collections Manager and a trustee of the museum. “The route crosses every major road out of Birmingham.”
The museum in Chapel Lane, Wythall, is to the south of Birmingham, just off the A435 immediately north of junction 3 on the M42. On Sunday and Monday the museum will open at 10.30. Parking is free.
