Re: Autumn 2018 service changes/cuts

I'm not sure how official this is. The County Council still subsidises quite a number of services and I thought Councillor Amos was the one who was in charge of that area. This seems to be almost a deal done between First and two councillors. Councillors do each have a pot of money from the County ...

Elgar's last home before he died was on the 35 route, on the site that is now Elgar Court (clue is in the title). Although he would have used Service W5 as it was then!
WOW ! -- I'm impressed Adam !!

(Did he know all the conductors ?)

Re: Mercedes Citaro's

The "Employee Director" was at Crowngate canteen on Thursday and said that the Citaros will be painted in "Elgar" livery for Worcester services, he was however, not able to give details of the colours or scheme. I'm not sure that ELGAR would have liked to go to Warndon ! ;) (And I expect Elgar Coac...

Re: Mercedes Citaro's

Now that service cuts are due, I'm wondering how many (if ANY) of these will actually materialise ! So far, on flickr, I haven't seen any photos of these at Thorntons (etc) - BUT, the planned service cuts might help release capital for the work to begin, if it hasn't already (?) (I think Adam may ha...

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 Bev...

Re: Autumn 2018 service changes (?)

The "sad" new timetables are now on the First Worcestershire website, so we can make a study of what's left. In the last couple of years, I have travelled on several buses serving Upton, that have had only a very few passengers, so I cannot blame First for cutting back there (again). As for the Pers...

Re: FMR: Refurbs and Repaints

66691 was back in service yesterday, at Crowngate -- in the now standard (for First Midlands) three-section (urban 2 ?) livery.
It appears that the seats have not been re-trimmed - which is a shame - but the red seats and yellow stanchions, make for a very colourful vehicle !
