2018 Social Meetings:
Held at Melbourne Tram Museum (former Hawthorn Tram Depot) at 3pm:

Sunday 15th July: Guest Speaker – Jeroen Weimar, CEO of the PTV will speak on "Current PTV programs to improve bus services in Victoria and possibilities for the future."

Sunday 16th September: Annual General Meeting and after: body builders – Freighter-Lawton

Sunday 18th November: “Transdev troubles – a photographic retrospective.” Members are invited to participate in this meeting with a selection of their favourite shots. Just bring your memory stick.

BCSV 50th Anniversary:
The Society will celebrate its 50th Anniversary in December 2018. A number of special events are in the planning stage. Details will be advised later in the year.

One idea is a special sit down luncheon on a Sunday in early December, possibly Sunday December 9.

Our current plan is to have a range heritage buses pick up at various places in Melbourne to bring people to the venue (yet to be decided), including a Southern Cross pick-up. Key members of the industry and supporters of the society would be invited as VIP guests.

Preliminary quotes suggest a cost of about $30 including food and soft drinks, provided by a catering firm.
