The Plymouth City Transport Preservation Group was formed in July 2006. Our aim is to preserve the history of local public transport through vehicle preservation and archiving of photos, documents and artifacts and making the vehicles accessible to all.
A massive thank you to our sponsors Exclusive First Editions and Plymouth Citybus. Please show your support by visiting their websites too. Simply click on their logos:

We will be having a working party to start clearing the undergrowth and the piles of builders sand at the outland site. This will enable the movement and better parking of vehicles in readiness for the scaffold company coming to the site. Their presence will greatly benefit the group with their expertise in covering the upper parking area.
If any volunteers who are able to help, have spades or wheelbarrows they would be greatly appreciated
