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Stagecoach Midlands fleet moves following the major bus services changes in January have seen several MAN/Enviro 200s withdrawn (there are just three left in Warwickshire, all at Nuneaton) and more Darts placed in reserve (Rugby...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

To be fair to Rotala this seems to have been part of their game plan since they started. I'm sure that if more opportunities had been available Diamond would have expanded more by now.

Re: Stratford - Birmingham ending (almost)

Good points Noggin1. The 110 thrives because it has been successful in attracting local passengers, uses high quality double decks (Sapphire 64-reg Enviro 400s) and has a good presence (every 15 minutes M-F). I work in Birmingham city centre and I've had a number of fast lunchtime rides to Erdington...

Stratford - Birmingham ending (almost)

Johnsons are withdrawing the X20 Stratford - Birmingham on weekdays after operation on Saturday 1st September. It will be replaced by a new hourly 20 running Stratford - Shirley Station. Reduced usage and bad traffic at the Birmingham end are given as the (valid) reasons. The Sunday service will con...

Re: End of the road for Wessex

Clearly badly hit by a revitalised First in Bristol that is doing very well. As many readers no doubt know, Stagecoach have relatively recently started running (mainly or wholly tendered?) bus services from an outstation at the South Gloucestershire Bus Company at Patchway. So it looks like the best...
