Re: Next Service changes

I expect the next move on the 146, 202 and 303 will be up to Worcestershire County Council. I can't blame Diamond for ceasing to run them if loadings will negligible. I wonder if WCC will increase the 182/183 Redditch - Alvechurch - Lickey - Bromsgrove from the current once a day each, to replace th...

Re: Next Service changes

From what I've been able to find out from Omnibus Society sources, although this is not totally confirmed, it looks like the 481 was suspended with effect from 23 March and the other services with effect from 6 April.

Re: Revised services from 23 March 2020.

303 between Kidderminster and Worcester suspended altogether from Friday 27 March 2020 with heavy cuts to most Diamond services elsewhere in Worcestershire from Monday 30 March 2020 ... I saw Simon Dunn reply to a post about this on Facebook on Friday saying that not one person used the 303 the pre...

Re: Buses serving Norton Parkway

A similar situation occurred a couple of years ago, when Kenilworth Station finally opened. As with Worcestershire Parkway the station opening day was confirmed at very short notice, but Stagecoach Midlands were allowed a short notice variation by the Traffic Commissioner to provide a Station Link s...

Competition around Coventry

Readers of 'Buses' will have read that Stagecoach Midlands started a Coventry - University of Warwick service, U12, on 4 January in direct competition with National Express Coventry. It runs 7 days a week - https://www.stagecoachbus.com/promos-and-offers/midlands/warwick-and-leamington-unibus. This ...

Re: 292 Diamond Bus

In actual fact R & B Travel ceased operations just after the turn of the year.

From 6 January the 292 passed back to Diamond (so they now operate the whole service) and the 291 Tenbury Wells - Kidderminster passed to Yarrantons.

Re: Darts on the move?

Whilst looking for our new solo on uk buses i noticed an order of e400 cities and i just wondered if any of these were for us? https://www.ukbuses.co.uk/fleet/firsteastengland.pdf Do you mean Scania/E400 City 36901 - 36919? I'm not sure but I think these may well be for First Eastern Counties for t...

Re: October changes

The bottom line has ruled since at least 1986, of course - bus service deregulation was brought in by the Government of the day on that premise. Having read the comments to the Worcester News article, it is clear that the County Council - which could fund replacement journeys if it wished - is getti...

Re: Midland Red South Traffic Commissioner Ruling

The reduction in vehicles authorised by the West Midlands Traffic Commissioner may be manageable without affecting operations. As is probably well known, Stagecoach Midlands reduced bus services across its territory on 5 January. The number of buses allocated to Warwickshire depots now is well under...
