    Default Buses to Broadway

    The Merseyside Transport Trust is running another bus running day on Sunday 4th April 2010. This time with an OMO (one man operation) theme. Buses in use will be Atlantean's & single Decker's. Buses will run between Mann Island and Broadway, with some feeder routes in the morning & late afternoon. Again travel on the buses will be free, but they always welcome a donation, (not to be given on the bus for legal reasons). Or you can buy a program from here http://www.mttrust.co.uk/ or on the day.

    I'd love to see the ones me mum was a clippie on. The open back jobs where you'd jump on a big platform.
