Welcome to the Eastern Transport Collection website. This site will give you an insight into the Society and provide information about buses in Eastern England. You can join the site as a web member, but why not join as a full member and help to preserve the vehicles we own.

We also publish a 32-page magazine called "Terminus", published bi-monthly for our members. This site will soon complement the articles in "Terminus" by providing an area for photographs and providing up-to-date news about the Society.

Society Profile
The Eastern Transport Collection Society is an Educational Charity, number 290666, and began as the Eastern Counties Omnibus Society, which was formed in 1969 by a handful of bus enthusiasts in Norwich. Membership has grown over the years and is spread throughout the United Kingdom. By 1984 the advantages of charitable status for the preservation activities of the Eastern Counties Omnibus Society had become apparent, and the Eastern Transport Collection Society was formed to take on board the work of the Eastern Counties Omnibus Society in the preservation field. In 1986 the remaining activities of the Eastern Counties Omnibus Society were amalgamated with the Eastern Transport Collection Society.

The object of the Eastern Transport Collection Society is to advance public education by acquiring and restoring a mobile collection of historic vehicles, which are related to public transport, and to establishing facilities for their public exhibition.
