Arrr: we can’t ride the 1964 GM bus to I Love Transit Night 2012 (but you can still see it at the event)!

Arrrr --- the bus won't be able to take us for a ride after all!

Crumbs! I’ve just had news from TRAMS that we won’t be able to offer a bus ride on the 1964 bus from Patterson Station.

Unfortunately, the Society was unable to secure insurance to cover passenger travel, so we will have to cancel the ride :(

However, take heart: TRAMS will still be able to park the bus near Bonsor for I Love Transit Night, so you can all climb on board and see what it’s like!

Don’t worry, I Love Transit Night will still be on, so you’ll still get to play transit games and meet fellow fans! Here are all the details!

I’ll also update the previous posts with the new information.

    The insurance requirement may be able to be bypassed if one is a member of TRAMS. Although I’m not sure as to the specifics of their insurance arrangements.

    If membership requirements have loosened, then it would be a fantastic way to support the organization and be able to ride the vehicles as well.

    Just some food for thought for future get togethers. Who wouldn’t enjoy a ride on some of our history?

    Cliff: a good suggestion! The vintage bus was a great hit and we are definitely thinking about bringing TRAMS back for more :)
