During the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, The Teesside 500 Group continues to take steps to protect our members and public alike.

Our monthly meetings are currently being held online using the Google Meet platform.

We have restarted our attendance at Rallies and our Summer Members trips out. Passengers on these outings are asked to wear masks and to 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 and its predecessors. We own seven vehicles that are native to the area, you will find a little bit more about these vehicles in our vehicles section including some photographs. Before the Covid pandemic, we held regular meetings on the last Tuesday in every month at the Malleable Club, 345 Norton Road, Stockton-on-Tees, these meetings started at 7:30 p.m.

The meetings at the Malleable Club and now our on-line meetings, involve slide shows, videos and talks covering a variety of transport subjects from the early days to the current times and we sometimes have summer evening trips out on a preserved bus, either our own or a guest vehicle. We regularly attend local bus rallies and other events including some community events organised by the local authorities.
