Ribble Centenary Celebration
Ribble Motor Services was established in June 1919. We have been celebrating the centenary throughout the year but we still have two remaining events:-
- Sunday 1st September. Special event at the Museum of Transport Greater Manchester, Boyle Street Manchester. This was to be the usual Trans Lancs event at Heaton Park but very wet conditions at the Park have led to that event being cancelled. Instead a shuttle service of buses from the Museum and RVPT will operate between the Museum and Heaton Park to make connection with the vintage trams in the Park. A particular theme will be the X60 service which ran on a very frequent basis between Manchester and Blackpool with many bus companies participating at the height of the season.
- Sunday 8th September. Museum of Liverpool, Mann Island, Pier Head. 4 buses and a selection of photographs on display outside the Museum. This date coincides with the Merseyside Transport Trust’s annual Liverpool Running Day. Two buses from our collection will also operate service.
