The London Bus Preservation Trust, which runs the London Bus Museum, is a Registered Charity. We receive no statutory or official funding and rely for finance entirely on the fundraising efforts of our volunteers and supporters
The Museum will welcome donations of transport ephemera which you perhaps no longer wish to keep. Whether your items join the Trust's Collection or are sold on to raise funds for the Museum, you will have the satisfaction of knowing that they have gone to a good cause.
Items that are sought after by the Museum will be taken formally into the Trust's Collection and may go on display. Others that duplicate what we already have or are outside our Collecting Policy will (with your permission) be sold to raise funds to support the Museum's work.

- London bus crew uniforms from the 1920s to the 1970s
- London bus cap badges and PSV badges
- London ticket machines - Gibson, Ultimate, Setright, Bell Punch
