Re: Worcestershire's future passenger transport

I have just filled in the survey - but I think that it is just lip service, and nothing will come out of it!

Re: First Group to be split and sold off.

Personally, I would like either Stagecoach or Go Ahead to take over the Worcester operation, if as DD12's speculation about a complete stand-along company with it's own shares doesn't come to fruition.

Re: Worcestershire's future passenger transport

DD12 - usual the Council are working "flat out" with the scheme to reduce congestion. That article wasn't worth the paper it was printed on - Worcester's officials are pathetic and haven't got the balls to do anything. The Worcester News (if it still exists by then) could simply print exactly the sa...

Re: Replacement Coaches for Worcester

20611 has returned from the paintshop, in a livery similar to the "spare" Citaros. It has now received graphics but was parked in the garage in such a way that I was unable to get a picture. I'm sure it will be out on the patch soon.

Re: Replacement Coaches for Worcester

It was being treated to a deep clean yesterday (Tuesday) suggesting that it is being prepared for use, probably on rail replacement services

Re: Replacement Coaches for Worcester

The second coach is expected tomorrow (Wednesday) but is not the expected 20612. Apparantly it is a dealer stock coach as although 20612 has had its new engine fitted, it is being used by First Berkshire as one of their new coaches is accident damaged. 20611 still has not entered regular service, I ...

Re: Price of single fare tickets on First bus Worcester services

Its something to do with the M-Ticket app, and concerns Worcester weekly an monthly tickets. The area validity has been increased to Malvern, but there is a problem with the software as the Ticketer machines do not recognise it. Drivers have to manually register the ticket. So far, I have only encou...

Double Deckers

I heard today from a very reliable source that the Tridents and Volvo Alexander ALX400s are expected to be replaced sometime this year as the MD thinks they are looking tired and rather scruffy. The replacements will be coming from another fleet, and I would think that Volvo/Wright vehicles will be ...
