Glasgow here we come

Though we don't usually go to Glasgow as the round trip is a bit far for our urban buses, we have to make some exceptions. Later in May we're heading back to the Riverside Museum, one of the most spectacular buildings in the city. Perfect for us too because it is the transport museum, sited right on the Clyde and designed by the late architect Zaha Hadid. We'll be taking two buses there for a corporate hire. 

The Riverside features a stunning zigzag roof and zinc cladding, with two entrances. It looks amazing all of the time but especially lit up at night and with red Routemasters parked outside...

The Red Bus/Riverside

Roll up for the wedding bus!

This Saturday (April 21st) you can come aboard The Red Bus at Chamber Street, Edinburgh and experience it in full wedding mode all they way to the Scottish National Mining Museum at Newtongrange. For free! We'll even bring you back again afterwards.


The mining museum is holding a fabulous wedding fair and we'll be there from 12pm to 3pm. If you want to hop on at Chamber Street, we'll be parked at the George IV Bridge end from 11.15am, all decorated with fresh flowers and ribbons. And we'll be happy to answer any questions about your possible plans for wedding transport. 

If you prefer not to come to Newtongrange, you're still welcome to take a stationary peek.

We hope to see you there...

And the winner is...

The Red Bus is delighted to announce it is repainting one of its red buses... red. I know, it may not sound earth shattering but at least one of us at The Red Bus had liked the idea of ivory "to make it more of a head turner". We are grateful to all those clients, suppliers and vintage bus enthusiasts who took the trouble to give their opinion on this crucial matter!
