2023 Memories

Summer Open Day 21st July 2024

This year sees us team up with the South Yorkshire Transport Trust to celebrate 50 years since the formation of SYPTE.

For the event this Summer we have a few routes operating to different locations. The Rotherham service is calling at SYTT & SYTM.

Entry fees for the event are £10 Adults, £5 Concession & £20 Family. These entry fees will give all day access to both museums and can be paid at either location, so no need to pay twice.

There will be a variety of vintage/classic vehicles operating the FREE bus services. The SYTM will do our best to accommodate everyone, but most of the buses are by their very nature from times past, so we cannot carry wheelchairs or unfolded prams on most of our fleet. Most will have steps on the entrance, so please bear this in mind before boarding the buses. You are carried at your own risk, with the vehicle owners, drivers or event organisers accepting no responsibility for any loss or damage or injury, inside or outside a vehicle. The purchase of a program is not conditional on riding on any of the bus services. The small charge made for a program will go towards the huge costs of staging this event for the public. While we will make every effort to maintain the advertised timetable, our vehicles can be temperamental, so please be patient in the event of a delay or any cancellation. We cannot be held responsible for any loss, damage or inconvenience caused by operating failure, within or beyond our control. Thanks for attending this Event, we hope you enjoy your day.

Terry Elllin had such a big impact on the Museum helping with a lot of the aspects of making it what it is today. He is sadly missed by all. Pictured here with his two Leyland Comets and his wife Hazel. R.I.P. Terry Ellin.

Trev 'The Brush' Weckert was just one of the volunteers that worked on our newest restoration of fleet no. 216 as he painted the whole vehicle by hand with his trusty brush. He asked for a new brush, but we did mention that we would buy him some new bristles.
