For the 15th year in a row Yellow Buses turned pink to raise money and awareness for charity.
Drivers, engineers and administration staff swapped their uniforms and overalls for garish garments.
Even new managing director David Squire joined in by donning a pink wig.
Other items on display included onesies, leggings, shirts, hats, blazers and coats. They made Yellow Buses even brighter than usual.
The 15 years of fundraising by the Bournemouth-based firm has raised thousands of pounds for good causes.
This year the money went to the Wear It Pink charity.
Fiona Harwood, Marketing Sales Manager, said: “Drivers had collection tins on their buses and the passengers were as generous as always.
“Our staff went to town and got on board with the whole pink theme.
“As well as raising money we hope to have raised some awareness about the charity.
“Yellow Buses is well known for the support we give to a variety of local charities and we have a number of themed days throughout the year.”

It carries just under 15m passengers a year with its vehicles operating nearly five million miles across the Bournemouth, Poole, Christchurch and East Dorset area. Yellow Buses is part of RATP Group, the world’s fifth largest public transport provider.
RATP Dev is a RATP group subsidiary set up in 2002 to export the Group’s operation and maintenance knowhow outside the historic network operated by RATP in the Paris region. RATP Dev now operates in 15 countries on four continents (United Kingdom, France, Italy, Switzerland, Algeria, Morocco, South Africa, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, India, China, South Korea, the Philippines, the USA and Brazil). In 2015 RATP Dev generated revenue of more than 1.1 billion euros.
With 14 million passengers every day worldwide, RATP group is the fifth largest urban transport operator in the world. The multimodal network operated by RATP in the Paris region, with its 14 metro lines (including two driverless lines), two regional express network (RER) lines, seven tramway lines, 350 bus lines and shuttle services catering to the region’s two international airports, is the largest of its kind in the world to be managed by a single company.
RATP group can devise, design and implement infrastructure development projects, operate and maintain networks irrespective of the transport mode (metro, regional train, tramway and bus) and develop innovative services to promote mobility such as passenger information, electronic ticketing, pricing and customer marketing. The automation of Paris metro’s Line 1, which was completed at the end of 2012, is a world first and once again has demonstrated the ability of RATP group to complete particularly complex projects.
