posted 19 Sep 2009, 03:13 by myEdinburgh Admin

We will be opening our Annandale Street Garage on Saturday morning, 26 September, as part of Edinburgh’s Doors Open Day.

  • Would you like to see round one of Edinburgh’s landmark buildings?
  • Learn how a busy bus depot is run?
  • Sit behind the wheel of a double deck bus?
CENTRAL DEPOT  
The Depot, originally constructed for the industrial Exhibition of 1922, became the home for Edinburgh Corporation Transport’s bus fleet in 1926, housing 108 vehicles including buses, char-a-bancs and city cars. 


Today the building houses over 200 Lothian Buses and 700 staff !


There will be lots to see and plenty for children to do, and its all free.


Come along on Saturday 26th September, 9.30am to 12pm.

Access by guided open-top bus tours at 9.30am and 10.30am
