According to the Oxford and Chiltern bus page, MR (S) E200 MMC 37401 is to be repainted into a heritage Midland Red livery to mark the centenary of Banbury garage.

Re: Autumn 2018 service changes (?)

Re: Hay Festival 2018 (?)

Re: .... and now Bewdley !

(I hope this facility will be properly promoted and publicised, but of course that is the "Achilles heel" of far too many bus services !) Indeed, sadly too many smaller bus companies don't have the resources for publicity, and many Councils including Worcestershire don't have resources either anymo...
