What The British Trolleybus Society Does
The British Trolleybus Society maintains & restores a historic & unique fleet of trolleybuses, details of which are in the Fleet List pages. The BTS also contributes to the management & operation of the Trolleybus Museum at Sandtoft, which houses the largest collection of preserved trolleybuses in the world. The Society produces a monthly magazine, ‘Trolleybus’, as well as local bus newsletters for Reading (Bus Fare) & West Yorkshire (Wheels). A free copy of 'Trolleybus' is available to prospective members. Either download a copy by registering using "Member Login", or apply to the Secretary who will post a printed copy to you.
There are monthly meetings in London, Reading & Bradford, to which all are invited.
We are partners in the publication of ‘Trolleybooks’, which cover historic and current systems in the UK and abroad.
We currently have available copies of David Bowler's 'Portsmouth Trolleybuses' which you can purchase here. These are post free while stocks last.
The organisation is run entirely by volunteers and is a registered charity No. 1033666.
