Last Day of the Metrobus

Last day of the Metrobus Cover
Between 1978 and 1989, West Midlands PTE (Later West Midlands Travel) purchased over 1000 Metrobuses. They were 'Buses built in Birmingham, for Birmingham'. They served the company for over 30 years, the last three running in service on 24th July 2010, from Acocks green bus garage in Birmingham.

The garage made the day into a special event, and donated all fares taken on the day to charity.

With interviews with National Express West Midlands management, drivers, and fitters, this film is a fitting tribute to the reliability, and economy of the bus which was the mainstay of the fleet for such a long time.

Filmed entirely with HD cameras.
