Preserved Aldershot & District
Buses and Coaches

ADBIG does not actually own any preserved vehicles in its own right, but currently there are eleven preserved Aldershot & District buses that remain in full running order that make up the so called "ADBIG fleet".

  • Nine of these buses are privately owned by ADBIG members who regularly permit them to participate in ADBIG organised tours and other events.
  • Two others, 178 and 506, are owned by commercial coach companies, but are operated in A&D livery as commercial private hire vehicles.
  • These ex Aldershot & District buses are:-

    There are also around a dozen other ex A&D buses and coaches that have been rescued by ADBIG members currently off-road in various stages of restoration.

    Alder Valley
  • Recently ADBIG's remit has been extended to include A&D's successors, the Thames Valley and Aldershot Omnibus Company Ltd, "Alder Valley", particularly their operations south of the A30 and, to a lesser degree, later Arriva and Stagecoach services operating within the old A&D area.
  • ADBIG members also own at least two preserved Alder Valley vehicles.
