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 a number events each year, some at the Museum and others in the West Riding area. Full details of all these are on the EVENTS page of this website. Also, we take our buses and coaches to other events and rallies 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.

We are on Kirkgate in Wakefield for today’s Guy Wulfrunian photograph where we see 1027 (BHL378C) in the revised green and cream livery with a number 10 service to Kettlethorpe.
The buildings in this photograph have not changed since it was taken but the names of the shops have all changed.
Something else that has changed is the traffic flow. Waiting for a Hillman Imp to turn across its path into Kirkgate, by the old Dog and Gun Inn, is an unidentified Wulfrunian. This part of Kirkgate is now pedestrianised so we will never see a scene like this again.
At the bottom of The Springs is a Sheffield JOC Leyland Atlantean, presumably on a 67 service back to its home city.
This is our
