Glasgow Vintage Vehicle Trust

Glasgow Vintage Vehicle Trust was formed in 2002 and is a registered charity (SC034066) managed by trustees.

General objectives are:

1. The restoration and preservation of historic passenger-carrying and commercial vehicles, and

2. The promotion of the welfare and relief of the needs of addicts and thereby working towards the social inclusion of such individuals.

Since 2003 the Trust has leased the former Bridgeton Bus Garage from Glasgow City Council. While 1960s architecture is usually functional rather than decorative, the building deserves to be retained as a fine example of the building style of that period.

The garage is now well established as a heritage centre for buses and commercial vehicles. There are more than 100 buses, coaches, commercial vehicles and fire appliances in the collection.  Vehicles are usually owned by individuals or small groups and range from hulks rescued from scrap yards and awaiting restoration to fully restored and active examples. Vehicles from the collection participate in events within the city and beyond, often allowing the public the opportunity to travel on the them.

Our Back on the Road project assists those with drug or alcohol addiction problems by providing work experience which will prepare them for a return to employment and society in general.
