HOW DO I GET A PROGRAMME IN ADVANCE?
Simply send a cheque or postal order payable to "West Riding Omnibus Museum Trust" for £4.00 (includes p&p) to us at 47E Dale Street, Ossett, WF5 9HE. Don't forget to include your name and address.
HOW DO I GET THERE?
By bus - Arriva services 202, 203, 253 and 278 pass the Bus Museum. Many other services stop at Dewsbury Bus Station, where you can connect with our free shuttle service. Our free feeder services from other towns are listed lower down this page.
By train - Alight at Dewsbury Station, then it's a four-minute walk down the hill to South Street, next to the Bus Station to catch our free shuttle service.
By car - use postcode WF13 3JR to get to the free car park at Ravensthorpe Retail Park. It takes only a minute to walk to the Bus Museum. Please do not try to park in Foundry Street by the Museum or in Havelock Street as you will cause an obstruction.
WHERE ARE THE TOILETS?
Toilets are available in The Royal public house, next door to the Bus Museum. There are also public toilets in Dewsbury Bus Station.
CAN I BRING MY OWN BUS?
Yes please! If you want to be a static exhibit, or to run in service, please download the entry form (PDF format) by clicking this "PDF" button. >>>
There is no charge for this. All visiting bus drivers will
receive two free programmes, free entry to the Museum
and a free cup of tea or coffee in our cafe.
CAN I BRING A TRADE STAND?
Sorry, but all the space in the Museum building is now taken. If you are prepared to brave the elements, we may be able to fit you in on the forecourt at a slightly reduced rate. Please contact us for further information (details below).
CAN YOU ACCOMMODATE MY DISABILITY?
The Museum building is on one level, with level entry from the street. The Havelock Street site is level. A kerb-height ridge runs across the site, but it has a ramp at one end. Toilets in The Royal are accessible with no steps. Entry to The Royal is via a sloping ramp. We are sorry, but due to their age and design our buses cannot carry wheelchairs or buggies unless they can be folded flat, and all have step-entrances. If you have any specific needs, please contact us in advance (details below) and we will do everything we can to assist you.
HOW DO I CONTACT YOU FOR MORE INFORMATION?
By phone to 0844 504 0089 (5p per minute) or e-mail to email@example.com
