Glasgow Doors Open Days Festival The last purpose-built Glasgow Corporation
bus garage. Home to the Glasgow Vintage Vehicle Trust, it contains vintage
buses, commercial vehicles and transport-related artefacts. Bridgeton Bus
Garage was built for Glasgow Corporation Transport and opened in 1965. It's a
good example of industrial architecture from that era. The garage operated
buses till 1976 (only 11 years). It was later used as a local authority
internal transport depot before being leased by Glasgow City Council to the
Glasgow Vintage Vehicle Trust in 2003. The garage is now well established as a
heritage centre for buses and commercial vehicles. It contains vehicles
ranging from hulks rescued from scrap yards to fully restored and active
examples. The vehicles we have revive memories of years gone by with a wide
variety of makes, models and liveries long since disappeared from our streets.
Learn about the collection with a specially-tailored guided tour around the
building, and for the first time, the Glasgow Vintage Vehicle Trust's archive.
