Welcome to the Ribble Vehicle Preservation Trust Website
Welcome to the Ribble Vehicle Preservation Trust website. The RVPT is a Charitable Trust dedicated to the preservation, restoration and operation of Ribble Group buses. Ribble was one of the UK’s pre-eminent bus companies covering at its peak an area from Merseyside to Carlisle.
Our collection contains buses from the beginning of the 1930’s up to 1980, housed in a modern depot in west Lancashire owned by the Trust.
The RVPT has made significant progress in recent years and we are keen to continue developing our contribution to transport heritage. We welcome your interest in our group and look forward to hearing from you. Tour the site and learn about our collection, public events we are organising or attending and our plans for the future. You can also join our Members Association which provides a quarterly newsletter and access to all areas of this website.
