Visiting Us

Our home, Bridgeton Bus Garage, is only open to the public on our advertised event days. These are usually the first Sunday of each month from Spring until Autumn as well as our Annual Open Weekend in October. We also have regular Guided Tours throughout the year which require advance booking. Unfortunately we don’t have the facilities to accommodate visitors on other dates except by prior arrangement. Please do not turn up on the off-chance as we hate to disappoint!

Members of the GVVT can visit the Garage on members days. For more details about becoming a member please see our membership page.

For group visits or educational bookings please get in touch by emailing

Public access on our Open Days is through our entrance at 171-185 Broad Street, opposite Clow Ladders. At other times and for Guided Tours our entrance is at 76 Fordneuk Street.

We are located just off the A74, London Road, in the East End of Glasgow, 10 minutes from the M74 and M8 motorways. Car parking is free and unrestricted in the streets around the Garage.

Bridgeton Railway Station is a 10 minute walk from the Garage.

Local Bus Services

Our Clippies Cafe is usually open on events days service hot and cold drinks, sweets and snacks. We also have additional catering on our bigger events, like our Open Weekend.


Bridgeton Bus Garage is all on one level with wide doorways for easy access. We have an accessible toilet. Assistance dogs are of course very welcome. If you require any assistance when visiting one of our events please speak to one of our stewards who will be happy to help. Due to their historic design the vehicles we operate on our free bus services are not fully accessible. We are usually able to accommodate a wheelchair user if they are able to step out of their chair onto the bus and the wheelchair is able to be folded. We unfortunately cannot carry mobility scooters. We have a modern accessible vehicle that we endeavor to operate as often as possible to allow everyone to experience a bus ride when we offer a free bus service.

Visiting Dogs

We welcome well behaved dogs to most areas of Bridgeton Bus Garage, except the Clippies Cafe (assistance dogs excepted).

Please note dogs must be kept on a lead at all times and any droppings must cleaned up. We can provide water on request.
