Re: Autumn 2018 service changes/cuts

Thanks again Tim, for the info above. The original plans that I saw a few years ago, were for that narrow gap in the hedge opposite the exit of Bevere Close, to be a "bus-gate" into the new estate. In support of that, the developers also had to provide a "swept-path analysis" report to show that Be...

Re: Autumn 2018 service changes/cuts

Tim - talking of Council waste, why are they building a new bus stop lay-by just north of Green Lane, when there is a perfectly serviceable one 100 yards away, which has been there for several decades. I expect that they will say it is for new development on the adjacent fields but it still seems t...

Re: Autumn 2018 service changes/cuts

Tim, I understand there are many people who need a bus pass and for those people it is a great scheme, and I do not begrudge them in any way. However, every day I see people abuse the system and that is what winds me up. Someone once told me that 40% of journeys made using the free pass are non-ess...

Re: Autumn 2018 service changes (?)

[quote=Noggin1 post_id=6184 time=1533815934 user_id=227] Well, I was going to suggest mass protests by pensioners by hopping on to these buses rather than attending a meeting to try to save them, but after Adam's explanation I am not so sure. By all means jump on a bus to show it's being used and t...

Re: Autumn 2018 service changes (?)

There is now more detail on the rural routes on the First website -scroll down past the City services detail. https://www.firstgroup.com/worcestershire/news-and-service-updates/planned-changes/changes-services-17-september I suspected it was bad, but I am gutted. Perhaps the Council will help a lit...

Re: Autumn 2018 service changes (?)

It's ridiculous for the service 37! My mum catches the 1750 bus from bus station to Northwick to get home from work, do people like this not deserve a service? Maybe not putting a double decker on this service would be good idea at those times as they are never needed I would agree with you entirel...

Re: Autumn 2018 service changes (?)

"Our Tim" will be impressed by these service withdrawals ! -- NOT !! Yes I am well impressed that the 06-40 no. 37 from New Inn Ombersley Road into Crowngate has been withdrawn; it normally takes between 3 and 5 passengers at the New Inn and picks up at other stops into the City, many travel on by ...

Re: "Going in the wrong direction !"

On the Worcester News site today, is a detailed report about the DISASTROUS fall in the number of bus passenger journeys undertaken in Worcestershire in recent years. NOT unique to Worcestershire, and for reasons that are known to many of us, it makes grim reading. http://www.worcesternews.co.uk/ne...

Re: Mercedes Citaro's

Personally speaking I think it should be one of the 63*** Streetlites as most have been Worcester buses all their life apart from the mix up when some went to Leicester as much as it would be good seeing a thorntorns brand new refurbished citaro or a Barbie 3 Paxton which yes I agree needs a repain...

Re: Mercedes Citaro's

As the heritage Enviro will be replaced, how bout having one of the Mercedes in the heritage livery? ;) (However, I don’t think it would suit one of these buses myself) Found this on the internet, and reckon a Citaro looks quite well in red! However, red seems to look good on most modern buses. htt...
