Award winning Bluebird Coaches are hosted an Open Day on Sunday 29th September at Weymouth Football club grounds to celebrate 95 years in business.  Over 200 people attended the Open Day. Visitors had the opportunity to view the very latest Bluebird Coaches and hear all about the Bluebird Holiday programme for 2020.  Everyone enjoyed a complimentary cup of tea and a slice of celebration cake.  Bluebird Coaches also provided a FREE shuttle service which ran from the Kings Statue to the event.

The company has grown significantly over the past 95 years, brothers Stephen and Martyn joined the family business during the 1980s both working in the workshops and driving coaches, their sister Elaine worked alongside her mum, Margaret in the Weymouth Office on the Esplanade. Bluebird Coaches continue to offer Private Hire, day tours, holidays and school contract work as well as managing corporate contracts for Bournemouth and Weymouth football clubs.
