Rydabus 2022 is taking place on May 14th and 15th 2022!

Rydabus is a smaller event than Wightrider and usually takes place over a weekend in May. It is based in and around Ryde as its name implies.

We involve local attractions and events and provide a timetable of free vintage services to serve these partners. Most of the vehicles used are from the Museum’s collection, supplemented by a small number of visiting buses.

Programmes are produced and are sold to help visitors plan their travel.

Full details of the next Rydabus will be on the event website: https://www.rydabus.co.uk/
