The Real SparkySparky the Dragon Bus, JGA 199N, was a project in Glasgow offering play opportunities to disabled children and their families. It was a unique Playbus containing many special features, such as a chairlift from the lower deck, allowing users an access to the upper deck.
At the rear was an emergency exit slide. The slide started from the top deck with a large, soft mat on the ground to ensure safe landing.
Sparky encouraged many children to come along to the play scheme where they played alongside children of all abilities.
Sparky the Dragon Bus was quickly recognised for its valuable service, and even received a royal visit from Princess Anne.
