WANTED: Cheap or Free Bus Storage (ARA Restoration Project)


We are looking for people who may have property/space to store 1 to 2 ex Auckland Regional Authority (ARA) buses (covered preferably but not a must) that will be undergoing restoration work. Perhaps you have land that isn't being used or know of someone that does. This is an URGENT notice, as one of the buses we can obtain/purchase (a 1956 Daimler Freeline #511) is due to be scrapped very soon unless we can intervene and save it. This Daimler is possibly 1 of 10 of this type left out of a fleet that was once in the hundreds!

Our group is one that consists of bus driver's former an current and is soon to be registered as an incorporated society. This will help make it possible to access serious funding and sponsorship to get this project rolling in the right direction. Some of us have previously worked for the Auckland Regional Authority ( ARA Bus Division). This restoration project is community-driven, not for private collection but with an end goal to have the buses up and running for the public to see an enjoy :)

Please feel free to email me for further contact details or if you any questions.

Kind regards


The second picture is of my bus, a 1985 MAN SL200 ex ARA #1662 currently in storage.
