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.
A range of different video tours will let visitors experience the building and vehicles from many different perspectives. This will include guided tours and some bus trips around Glasgow!Go on a virtual guided tour!
