Annual Running Day for Merseyside Heritage Transport Charity

Thursday 1st September 2016

The Merseyside Transport Trust (MTT) will be holding its’ running day event on Sunday 11th September 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, some of which featured at The ‘Light Night’ event back in May. The event is also aimed to attract new members, volunteers, sponsorship & generate interest within the community. This event is in association with ‘Heritage Open Days’ (HODS).

This year’s event will feature services between Liverpool, Pier Head – Mann Island, Aigburth Vale, Walton & Speke Hall & the surrounding areas. Due to refurbishment works, our event will not be operating from Liverpool South Parkway Interchange as we have done in previous years.

A souvenir programme & guide to the day will be available for just £5 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 now in its’ 11th year and has gone from strength to strength using a similar format. We have been consistently attracting large numbers which is encouraging for a small charity and always looking at ways to make this event a huge 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 15 minutes starting around 10:00am from Mann Island and will observe all normal bus stops along the routes.

The event runs from approx.10:00 until approx.4pm. For more information see our website , ‘like’ us on Facebook (Merseyside Transport Trust) or contact
