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 so this year we are aiming to operate the Imberbus service on
Saturday 20th August 2016
with at least 10 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 will be operating an ordinary bus service, there will be no need to book in advance – just turn up and pay the conductor on the bus.
