A commemorative bus to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee has been unveiled by Nottingham City Transport.

The double deck bus features the official Platinum Jubilee emblem and is painted in a purple, platinum and white version of NCT’s livery. The platinum colour represents Her Majesty’s 70 years on the throne, whilst the purple colour is associated with royalty.

The Jubilee Bus was officially unveiled yesterday, 4th May 2022, by Lord Lieutenant Sir John Peace, the Lord Mayor of Nottingham Cllr David Trimble, Nottingham City Transport Managing Director David Astill and colleagues from NCT.

David Astill, NCT Managing Director said, “NCT has proudly served Nottingham for 144 years and it is remarkable that for almost half of that time the same sovereign, HRH Elizabeth II, has served her country and commonwealth. We think it appropriate to acknowledge her achievement on behalf of the city”

NCT also commemorated the Queen’s Silver Jubilee when two buses in a special silver livery operated across the NCT network during 1977.

On Bank Holidays Thursday 2nd and Friday 3rd June 2022, NCT will operate a Sunday service.
