Volunteering at Keighley Bus Museum

If you’re a Member at Keighley Bus Museum, then why not offer further support by becoming a volunteer?

Volunteers are what has kept us running since we started back in 1992. Volunteers are our life blood and without them we wouldn’t be able to keep our historic vehicles on the road, open our Museum to visitors, run our events programme and our private hire services. All this in addition to managing the day to day activities of a Registered Charity and Company. We are always on the look-out for other individuals to assist and lead our projects within the Museum and you’ll be surprised on how useful your skills can help us.

What can I do?

Well, there’s always something anyone can do to support our volunteer team. From cleaning our vehicles to general administrative work, to conducting and driving our historic vehicles, we welcome any new volunteers. Some work can be done from your own home, or if you want to attend and help out at our large Museum which contains over 100 vehicles, then please join us.

We also offer catering services on our open days and our website and Facebook pages need those of you who wasn’t to give regular updates to our Members and the general public.

The Museum runs a small fleet of buses we hire out for weddings and other private hire services. Handling customer enquiries, organising crews, washing and preparing buses through to driving and conducting on our hire services are all an integral part of the service we provide.

When do volunteers attend the Museum?

Typically, there’s somebody on site at our Museum in Keighley every day of the week. Whether you can spend an odd hour here and there or would like to attend on a regular basis, then any help you can provide is always appreciated. There’s a good social atmosphere at Keighley and anyone from any background or skill level is welcome to join in.


If you are, then it would be great to hear from you. Please contact us by either telephoning 07546 704558, or email: enquiries@kbmt.org.uk
