Souvenir Tickets

Bus conductor wearing ticket machine in harness

For a tickety-boo memento to take home, our conductor can issue individual bus tickets to each passenger from a genuine 1950s hand operated mechanical 'Gibson' ticket machine. These were used by London Transport bus conductors, mostly on Routemasters, from the 1950s to the 1980s.

Souvenir Tickets are an additional service, available for a small extra charge (not available with Routemaster Express or Regal Four vehicles).

Please ensure you tick the 'Souvenir Tickets' option if you make an online quotation request with us.

Our conductor will try to issue the tickets at your guests' seats if time and space allows, or otherwise during boarding or alighting.
