During the pandemic our monthly meetings were held online. Face-to-face meetings restarted in April 2022.

We have also restarted a full Rally and Summer Members trips out program for 2022, although the events must remain provisional until our buses are fully settled in after their prolonged time out of use. Passengers on these outings are asked if they would please continue to wear masks and observe common-sense Covid precautions whilst travelling, to protect everybody, themselves included.


The Teesside 500 Group was formed in 1988 for people interested in the buses and operations of Cleveland Transit, its predecessors and its successor, for whose continuing support we are most grateful. We own seven vehicles that are native to the area, you will find more about them in our vehicles section including some photographs.

We hold regular meetings on the last Tuesday of every month at the Malleable Club, 345 Norton Road, Stockton-on-Tees, these meetings start at 7:30 p.m. Members and friends are welcome to attend these meetings. Stagecoach services 36, 37, 38 and 52 pass the door.

The monthly 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. Our mid-summer meetings are usually evening trips out on a preserved bus, either our own or a guest vehicle. We regularly attend local (and not so local!) bus rallies and other events including some community events organised by the local authorities.
