In 2009, a group of bus industry professionals achieved a long standing ambition to run a vintage bus service from Warminster in Wiltshire, to the abandoned village of Imber on the Salisbury Plain. It proved to be so popular that it has now become an annual event, with most journeys continuing across the Plain to parts of Wiltshire rarely seen by public transport users.
There are only a few days each year on which the road through Imber is open to the public, so this year the Imberbus service will operate on
Bank Holiday Monday
25th August 2014
when we hope to use at least 7 former London Transport Routemaster buses to provide a half hourly bus service from Warminster Station to Imber and other isolated locations on the Salisbury Plain. As the buses will be providing an ordinary bus service, there will be no need to book in advance – just turn up and pay the conductor on the bus.
Further details of the routes, timetables and fares will appear on this website during the Summer and this information will also be emailed out to anyone who requests it – if you would like to add your name to our mailing list, please insert your email address into the “Keep up to date” box on the right hand side of this page or click the “+follow” button at the bottom of your screen.
