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 and this year the Imberbus service operated on
Saturday 22nd August 2015
when at 9 former London Transport Routemaster buses (plus 2 newer ones) provided a bus service from Warminster Station to Imber and to other isolated locations on the Salisbury Plain. As the buses were providing an ordinary bus service, there was be no need to book in advance – passengers just turned up and paid the conductor on the bus.
