Holloway Bus Garage Open Day Saturday 15th September 2018

Holloway Bus Garage Open Day:

Saturday 15th September 2018 10.30am – 4pm

All proceeds go to charity

On Saturday 15th September, local bus operator Metroline will open the doors of its bus garage in Pemberton Gardens, Holloway, N19 to local people, enabling them to see inside the premises from where 250 buses operate on local bus services.

The aim is to raise as much money as possible for charities, including those supporting Cancer Research and the British Heart Foundation.  Admission will be by programme, priced at £2.50, available on the day at the garage door. This year’s open day hopes to build on the success of previous year’s, which raised over £1,000 for charities - the aim is to raise even more money this year.

Attractions will include a display of buses, some dating back to the 1950s and 1960s right the way up to the modern day with some of Metroline’s newest buses on show. There will also be a variety of stalls selling transport memorabilia. A selection of hot and cold food and drinks will also be available.

Like last year, there will also be an opportunity to enjoy free rides on show buses around the local area; including rides on some heritage vehicles plus Metroline’s Routemaster bus which dates back to 1962, and now 55 years old, together with some more modern vehicles such as New Bus for London, dubbed the New Routemaster and one of Metroline’s new all-electric buses.

The garage is a short walk from Archway Tube station on the Northern Line or there are nearby bus stops on Holloway Road (Buses 17, 43 & 271) or Junction Road (Buses 134 and 390).

We look forward to seeing you there!
