RYDABUS was the branding of Southern Vectis bus services in the Ryde area during the 1970s.
Over the weekend of the 20th and 21st of May 2017, the Isle of Wight Bus Museum ran services over some of these routes as well as the former Seaview Services route to Seaview.
Services ran from the museum to Havenstreet for the Isle of Wight Steam Railway, to the Pell Estate, to Binstead, to Seaview via Haylands and to the Westridge Leisure Centre.
There were additional journeys to the Brading Station Heritage Exhibition and Historic Ryde Tours.
I had a very enjoyable day out on a warm, sunny Sunday.
