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.

Today’s Guy Wulfrunian photograph features 943 (THL943) in the revised livery on Kirkgate in Wakefield. It is passing an Austin 1800 that is parked directly outside what would become the entrance to Tesco and more recently, Wilkinson’s.
The number 90 service to Royston was an hourly service that ran from Leeds Central Bus Station via Woodlesford and Wakefield. In the early 1970s, it would be merged with other services to become the 444, 445 and 446 group and extended to Barnsley.
Over the years, major service reductions have taken place on the Wakefield – Barnsley corridor and the successor to the number 90 is now the 59 which is operated by The Yorkshire Traction Company trading as Stagecoach in Yorkshire.
