Lothian Buses: Doors Open Day - 26 September

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?
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
