IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT – COVID19 EFFECTS ON TEESSIDE 500 GROUP.
Due to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak across the world, The Teesside 500 Group has taken the necessary steps to protect our members and the wider general public. We have suspended our rally calendar program and regular monthly meetings with immediate effect, following Government advice. This is a decision not taken likely by the Trustees but one that is important for the health and well being of members, friends and wider public. In the meantime, our newsletter will be produced as normal and our Blog page will be updated on a weekly basis with different articles and blogs about everything Transport! Please keep checking back for further announcements. Dated 16/08/2020 at 15:20hrs
The Teesside 500 Group was formed in 1988 for people interested in the buses and operations of Cleveland Transit and its predecessors. We own five vehicles that are native to the area, you will find a little bit more about these vehicles in our vehicles section page including some photographs. We hold regular meetings on the last Tuesday in every month at the Malleable Club, 345 Norton Road, Stockton-on-Tees, these meetings start at 7:30 p.m.
The meetings at the Malleable Club involve slide shows, videos and talks covering a variety of transport subjects from the early days to the current times and we sometimes have a summer trip out on the bus in the evening. We regularly attend local bus rallies and other events including some community events organised by the local authorities.
It is the Group’s policy that all operational buses have MoT certification, whether exempt or not.
