Glasgow Vintage Vehicle Trust
76-136 Fordneuk Street
The Glasgow Vintage Vehicle Trust was formed at the end of 2002. There are five Trustees, each having considerable experience of large vehicle preservation. They have co-opted other like-minded people to form a Management Committee. Together they bring to the project a variety of complementary professional and practical skills.
The primary aims of the Trust are to promote the restoration, preservation and use of historic passenger carrying and commercial vehicles, and to advance education for public benefit by the provision of a working museum for the display of such vehicles.
The Trust has leased the former Bridgeton Bus Garage at 76-136 Fordneuk Street, Glasgow from Glasgow City Council. This was built for Glasgow Corporation opening in 1965. It was closed by Greater Glasgow PTE in 1976 and was later used as a local authority internal transport depot.
The Trust has prepared a Business Plan which sets out the strategy for developing Bridgeton Garage. The Plan takes into account the aim of the Trust to establish a Heritage Centre for commercial vehicles in the west of Scotland and the requirements of the City Council to promote social inclusion and economic regeneration in the area.
