Oxfordshire Bus Enthusiasts Society
« on: November 20, 2010, 10:34:47 PM »
The Oxfordshire Bus Enthusiasts Society was formed in June 2010, and aims to offer a monthly road passenger transport meeting in Oxfordshire.
These meetings normally take the form of a photo presentation or talk held in a central Oxford venue and to cover a wide and interesting range of topics.

For more information please visit http://www.oxbuses.webs.com

We are also always keen to hear from people interested in providing a guest talk to the society.
