Become a Friend

Help us to tell the story of the bus industry.

The Bus Archive can only exist through voluntary donations from people like you. If you think our work is important, you can make a real difference by supporting us financially. This will allow us to continue with the collecting and preservation of archive and library material, and enable us to open this up for research and education.

You can make a one-off donation at any time, but you can also become a Friend of the Bus Archive by commiting to a regular donation. To become a Friend we ask for a minimum of £10 per month or an annual donation of at least £120, but of course larger amounts are very welcome.

Being a Friend of The Bus Archive gives you:

  • Access to our priority list of surplus material available for disposal
  • Discounts on purchase of high quality images for personal use
  • Discounts on copyright fees for image reproduction
  • Special rates for research carried out by volunteers at your request.
The Bus Archive is a fantastic resource, which I can appreciate both as a professional and an enthusiast. By being a Friend, I can support the great work which is being done.” Nigel Eggleton
