Re: Borrowed or bought ??

Johnsons have 3 "pre-owned" E200's in service , I assume as dealer loans , unless anyone knows otherwise.

Re: TOF702S

Thanks for the info , on a closer look at the photo , the bus looks to have the dark blue "TELLUS" stripe above the side windows.

Re: Tour coaches in Bromsgrove Bus Station.

Another minibus this morning with Caradoc Travels C4GWG working a Just Go tour feeder. If I heard correct it was "next stop - Warwick Services". 8-)

Re: Driver wanted !

Sort of connected to this thread I guess - BBC Radio H & W suggest that there is a back log of 40,000 applictions at the DVLA for LGV licences. . . . . . They also say that DVLA have been "working" from home during C19. [My inverted commas around the word working ] ..

Re: Johnson's Driver Shortage?

If Bustimes are correct , Johnsons have two hired in E200's , both of which had recently been operated by Compass Bus of Worthing. All Johnsosn need now are a good supply of drivers . . . . and fuel. :( ;)

Re: Johnson's Driver Shortage?

A good friend of mine was talking to a member of Johnsons Coaches earlier in the week and was told that they have a number of buses "off the road" and have had to hire in at least one bus. So it looks like a double whammy . . . . :?

Re: The Green Bus

The Greenbus along with a number of other operators are taking "ex- London" buses into stock. Two such vehicles - E400's LJ09CDF / CEN [both still in red livery] were noted on school runs in Bromsgrove just before five pm yesterday. The morning journeys are at 7am and 7.20 am , a little early for me...
