Livery change on Salt Road buses ?

From a distance , it looks like one of the above buses has extra coloured stripes added just before the rear wheel arch. Similar to the ones on the "spare buses". Can any one confirm please ?? :)

I asked the same question the other day and told the rainbow stripe on one of the Salt Road Volvos was in support of Gay Pride and Birmingham Pride weekend 25 and 26 May 2019.

That is correct, but I saw the driver who organised it the other day and he told me they weren’t fitted until AFTER the event had finished!

Great idea, timing poor by the sounds of it. Saw one today on a 32 in Kempsey :lol:

Thank you for posting the pictures. It breaks up the green/green/green colour scheme in my opinion. :P

I like that. Should make it part of the normal livery.

I agree it would also tie in the spare bus livery.
