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 six 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 Billingham Social Club in Chapel Road, Billingham. These meetings start at 7:30 p.m. Members and friends are welcome to attend. Please see the Meetings page for the intended programme and for further information about the venue.

The monthly meetings 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.
