One by one, the buses arrived in style.
A Fishwicks bus, which was in use when Preston Bus Station first opened over 50 years ago, joined the ensemble.
Lots on onlookers gathered to admire the buses, which were parked at the bus station’s new coach station.
Along with the new coach station, the redevelopment project has seen a fully refurbished cafe, new toilets, new ramps and improved car park.
Following the arrival of the buses, a special plaque was unveiled by council leader Geoff Driver to mark the grand reopening.
