VISITORS can discover the role public transport is playing to keep the city green at the London Transport Museum Depot in Acton on the weekend of July 2-3 

During the special ‘Act-on It!’ open days taking place during London Climate Action Week, the Depot is throwing open its doors for visitors to see its many historical artefacts.  

The open days will explore how today’s transport technology being is transforming how we can sustainably move around the capital.   

Visitors can take part in a host of interactive activities as well as exploring the extensive collection of historic vehicles including Tube trains, buses, trolleybuses and trams.

For the first time, the Museum’s RM1 Routemaster, built in 1954, will be displayed alongside the Enviro 400 Electric from route 63.

These buses, taking passengers between Kings Cross and Honor Oak, have a skylight on the upper deck, larger rear window, USB chargers and larger wheelchair and buggy area. 

No visit to the Depot would be complete without jumping aboard the London Transport Miniature Railway. Tickets cost £1 per person and can be bought on the day.  

Timed tickets for the ‘Act-on It’ Open Days must be booked in advance online. Adult tickets cost £15 and for children £7.50. Those aged three and under go free.

Concessions are available for residents of Ealing, Hounslow or Hillingdon.
