History and Heritage – The Opening of a first Guided Bus trial on the 65 Bus Route in Birmingham, took place 35 years ago.
I was Chair of the West Midlands County Council in those days. It was a history making day .
Here I am greeting my cousin who was the Deputy Leader of Cheshire County Council Cllr Derek Bateman, who was present on the day. Derek played a huge role in the national transport scene, playing a lead role in the Shire Counties transport policies.
It was a high profile day with plenty of TV radio and newspapers present. It was nice to meet my cousin who was leading the Cheshire County Council team on the day.
