We are pleased to announce that this year, the Imberbus service will be operating on
Saturday 15th August 2020
when once again, several vintage former London Transport Routemaster buses (plus a few newer ones) will provide a bus service from Warminster Station to Imber and other isolated locations on the Salisbury Plain between 10am and 6pm.
This year our event is being promoted as Imber Car Free Day, as the only non-military vehicles that will be allowed on the roads around Imber on 15th August will be the buses operating the Imberbus service. This should hopefully eliminate the severe traffic congestion that we experienced around Imber in 2019, but means that some of the arrangements for our event this year will need to be slightly different and these will be publicised on our website during the summer.
Last year’s Imberbus was the most successful yet, with excellent weather for most of the day and a record number of passengers carried, enabling us to donate more than £24,000 to the Imber Church Fund, Macmillan Cancer Support and the Royal British Legion. We are therefore hoping for another successful event in August and our preparations for this are now well in hand.
If you have not travelled on the Imberbus service before and would like to know more about it, please visit our website at www.imberbus.org which contains details about the history of Imber and the background to the service. We have also retained on there, details of the arrangements that applied for Imberbus 2019 plus our Frequently Asked Questions page to give you an idea of what to expect, but we will update this information once the final arrangements for this year have been confirmed during the Summer.
We therefore hope that you will be able to join us in August and look forward to seeing you then.
