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...

Re: 1962 Anywhere Tickets

Anyone remember the National Wanderbus ticket issued by the NBC at some stage in the 70's ?? I have/had a leaflet somewhere . . . . . £2.97 if I recall. :shock: I do! It was valid from the north Midlands southwards, and I used them for many trips from Birmingham in the late 70s and early 80s. It wa...

Re: Versa

The Versas have all been returned to Warwickshire County Council. Other Stagecoach Midlands fleet moves following the major bus services changes in January have seen several MAN/Enviro 200s withdrawn (there are just three left in Warwickshire, all at Nuneaton) and more Darts placed in reserve (Rugby...

Re: Expansion !
