FIRST Glasgow is marking 125 years of public transport in the city by bringing some nostalgia to the company’s bus fleet.

The roots of First Glasgow’s present day operation can be traced all the way back to 1894, when the Glasgow Corporation Tramway was introduced that year on July 1.

Glasgow’s public transport operations have had a colourful history every since, with trams, trolleybuses and the motor buses that have continuously served the streets of the city sporting a number of eye-catching liveries along the way.

Now, to mark the occasion, First Glasgow is turning back the clock and bringing back three classic liveries; Glasgow Corporation livery (1960s), Greater Glasgow PTE livery (1970s) and Strathclyde’s Buses livery (1980s).

Three double decker buses will be given an external makeover.

A number of events to mark “Glasgow 125” take place across the city, the biggest of which will take place on July 7 through the Glasgow Vintage Vehicle Trust.

An open Sunday event will be hosted at their bus museum in Bridgeton, which houses over 100 examples of buses in various stages of restoration.

Andrew Jarvis, managing director for First Glasgow, said: “We are delighted to be working with the dedicated team of volunteers at the Glasgow Vintage Vehicle Trust to help celebrate our history.

“Our modern double deckers will sport the colours of yesteryear but brought up to date to suit the lines of the vehicles.

“We hope people of all ages enjoy seeing them out and about around Glasgow.”
