A VINTAGE bus willl be taking on a service to Ashbourne tomorrow as its operating firm marks its centenary.
Trentbarton, which runs a service between Derby and Ashbourne, will be using one of a fleet of vintage buses to retrace the route of the first services it ran, 100 years on from the launch of the Trent Motor Traction Company and the centenarty will be raising money for the Lewis Mighty Fund.
The firm’s commercial director Alex Hornby, said: “The name may have changed and the network has expanded across Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and beyond, but we can trace our roots back to a very special day in 1913.
“To mark the landmark occasion we’re offering free rides on the vintage vehicles along the routes now served by our i4 and swift buses.
“Whilst anyone is free to enjoy these wonderful relics of times gone by, we will be encouraging people to make a donation to a very worthy, local cause that’s supporting youngsters battling against cancer.”
