The Merseyside Transport Trust (MTT) will be holding its’ Easter running day event on Sunday 5th April to raise funds for the upkeep of its’ fleet of over 50 vintage vehicles.
This is a rare and unique opportunity to enjoy a ride on some of buses in our collection. The event is also aimed to attract new members, volunteers, sponsorship & generate interest within the community.
This year’s event will feature services between Liverpool, Pier Head – Mann Island, Page Moss & around the surrounding areas. Buses will run on original routes serving Prescot Road, West Derby Road and Edge Lane corridors with a 1960’s theme.
A souvenir programme & guide to the day will be available for just £4 and any donations you would like to make to the group would be most welcome.
Steve Kelly, Chairman of The MTT is leading the event & has been involved with the group for over 30 years. Steve said: ‘’this event is becoming more popular as we only ever used to bring one vehicle out on Easter Day. We take advantage of quieter roads and a day generally where people tend not to get up to much, so they come & see us instead! We have been consistently attracting large numbers which is encouraging for a small charity and always looking at ways to make this event a bigger success. All funds raised at the event will go a long way in helping to keep our collection safe for the future. We rely totally on donations & the good nature of people.’’
Buses run generally every 45 minutes starting around 10:00am from Mann Island & Page Moss and will observe all normal bus stops along the routes.
