The Dewsbury Bus Museum is owned and operated by the West Riding Omnibus Museum Trust and is run by a dedicated group of volunteers. The aim of the Trust is to preserve the transport heritage of the West Riding of Yorkshire and the surrounding areas. Some of our buses and coaches are owned by groups, others by individual members.
We are a Registered Charity, No. 702232, and virtually all of our income is derived from members' subscriptions, the proceeds of events and book sales and rental of space to members to store their own vehicles.
We hold three events each year in March, August and November, details of which are on the EVENTS page of this website. Also, we take our buses and coaches to outside events organised
by other museums and enthusiast groups.
If you wish to bring a group for a private visit to our museum at other times, please contact us.

It is with great regret that, because of the new Covid-10 restrictions limiting gatherings to a maximum of six, the Trustees have had no option but to cancel all members' meetings until further notice. Please keep looking here for updates.
