|The family orientated day housed a selection of varying vehicles from a day gone by through to the modern day era.|
The first bus garage open day was held at Catford on 10th May 2014 and attracted around 3,000 visitors. Since then, Alperton, Stockwell, Fulwell and Potters Bar Bus Garages have all opened their doors to the public to offer behind-the-scenes access in celebration of the Year of the Bus. The last bus garage open day will take place at Dartford Bus Garage on Sunday 7th September - so don't forget to note it in your diary.
Events and activities are being held throughout 2014 to celebrate the role that London buses, bus drivers and the staff who support them play in keeping the capital moving, and mark a number of important anniversaries. These include 60 years since the creation of the original and iconic Routemaster, 75 years since the launch of its predecessor the RT-type bus, and 100 years since hundreds of London buses were sent to the Western Front to play a crucial role during the First World War.
