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 ordinary public transport users.
There are only a few days each year on which the road through Imber is open to the public and so this year the Imberbus service will operate on
Saturday 26th August 2017
with several London Transport Routemaster buses (plus a few newer ones) providing a bus service from Warminster Station to Imber and to other isolated locations on the Salisbury Plain. As the buses will be operating an ordinary bus service, there is no need for passengers to book in advance – just turn up and pay the conductor on the bus.
We will be providing more information about this year’s service on this website during the summer and you can keep up to date with our plans by adding your name to our mailing list – just insert your email address into the “Keep up to date” box on the top right hand side of this page, or click the “+follow” button at the bottom of your screen.
