The good news is that all classic buses running heritage services at Wightrider are free. Due to Ministry of Transport legislation, we cannot charge for travel.

However we do encourage the sale of programmes as it is the principal method of funding the event. The programmes are available at the museum and online.

The Isle of Wight Bus & Coach Museum is fully accessible to wheelchair and pushchair users, however please be aware that the vintage vehicles being used on the event bus services were designed and built many years ago and are not readily accessible to such users.

We will make every effort to enable disabled visitors to fully participate in the event, and we would ask you to make our volunteers aware of any special requirements. We will aim to provide all possible assistance as required.

We welcome assistance dogs and their owners to the Museum site and on all services that we are operating. Clean and well-behaved pet dogs (and their owners) are also welcome; however travel on privately owned/preserved vehicles is entirely at the discretion of the owner/driver/conductor.

The Museum is the home of the “Bus Fare” gift shop which offers an extensive selection of transport memorabilia as well as Island gifts and souvenirs.
