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 operated on
Saturday 26th August 2017
with more than 15 former 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 were operating an ordinary bus service, there was no need for passengers to book in advance – passengers just turned up and paid the conductor on the bus.
