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 we operated the main Imberbus service on

Saturday 17th August 2019

with several London Transport Routemaster buses (plus a few newer ones) carrying a record number of passengers from Warminster Station to Imber and to other isolated locations on the Salisbury Plain. We even managed to run a few journeys to Imber on the Sunday as well (click here to see what we had planned for both days) !

As the primary purpose of the Imber Ranges is military training, there are no further Imberbus events planned for 2019. It is also likely to be several months before we know the next date when we we will be allowed to run buses up to Imber, so please check this website again during Spring 2020 to find out when Imberbus will be running again.  You can also keep up to date with future Imberbus events by adding your name to our mailing list – just insert your email address into the box on the right hand side of this page, or click the “+follow” button at the bottom right hand side of your screen.
