This photo was taken on one of my 4am photo shoots. I ventured to Acocks Green Bus garage which is the home of some of the Travel West Midlands buses.
Even at that time of night the garage was a hive of activity. Drivers were arriving for the early morning shift, cleaners were preparing the buses, the Metro newspapers were being loaded on board and even the mechanics were in making repairs and changing tires. There is a lot that goes on behind the scenes before all the buses are rolled out, so next time you are on a bus, give a smile and thank you to your driver – his day may have started long before yours :)
