We make no profit from the books and use them for educational visits to primary schools where author Sylvia Bird gives road safety talks and explains how to use a bus. The children can get on board the Dennis Dart liveried bus and discover safety features on-board the bus. They can also take a short bus ride around the city.

School visits by Dennis can be arranged for local schools or groups of Key Stage 1 children by contacting Julie Putt at or by calling 01752 264216

Dennis has had a make-over and is now sporting a brand new livery! Everyone here at Citybus thinks he looks great. Dennis is looking forward to visiting more primary schools in September after his summer holidays!
