Winchester King Alfred Buses Running Day 2022

Winchester-based Friends of King Alfred Buses (FoKAB) held their Original King Alfred Buses Running Day which took place in and around the city on Monday 2nd May 2022.

Up to 12 traditional King Alfred buses ranging in age from 91- to 52-years-old were in attendance on 2 May 2022, in company with several heritage buses and coaches originating from other local operators.

Free bus services operated, based on Winchester Broadway and the St Catherine’s Park & Ride car park, covering most of the traditional King Alfred routes, plus those of neighbouring historic companies such as Aldershot & District and Hants & Dorset.

The King Alfred sales stand was open in the Broadway near to Winchester Guildhall, whilst at St Catherine’s there was a static display of historic vehicles with a frequent free bus service to/from central Winchester.
