The aim of The Edinburgh Transport Group is to promote an interest in public transport, encompassing buses, coaches, railway traffic and other vehicles.
Membership will entitle you to our full colour magazine, “EXPRESS”, which is issued occasionally throughout the year. We hold our monthly meetings on the first Thursday of every month (with the exception of January). Winter meetings, from September to April, are held indoors, and consist of slide shows, talks, presentations or quizzes. Summer meetings, from May to August, are normally bus trips to various locations on interesting vintage or modern buses hired for the occasion.
Membership costs £15 per year and is payable from 1 April each year. Family membership is available for £20 per year.
You not not need to live in the Edinburgh area to join. We have many members from near and far. Those who are unable to attend the meetings will of course receive the "EXPRESS" magazine and have the same membership rights as everyone else.
If you are not a member and would like to join, you can currently do this in these ways:-
You can attend at any of the scheduled group meetings as detailed on this website, make yourself known and ask to see the Membership Secretary or Treasurer, either of whom will be happy to take your details and membership fee. There is no commitment to join, so if you would like to come along and see what our meetings are like, please do so, and if you decide to return and join us, we will enrol you as a member.
You can write to our Membership Secretary:-
Brian Melrose, 25 Broomburn Grove, Edinburgh, EH12 7NN, enclosing your cheque, and we will enrol you as a member.
A copy of the Group’s constitution is available upon request from us at this e-mail address.
We look forward to welcoming you.
