Re: Changes to Worcester city 36/36A & 37 from 05/01/20.

That's a shock !! :shock: It would appear then that the Salt Road rebranding exercise has been a failure.

Re: Double Deckers

Re: "along the Salt Road" !

From a Marketing perspective, for a new customer unfamiliar with Bus travel or the area it builds an affiliation to a route through recognition of a colour scheme. What it doesn't do well is communicate that the vehicle is part of a larger fleet that you can use a zonal ticket on. "Valid on all Firs...

Re: 66691 rear suspension collapse?

66698 parked up by HiQ Droitwich road earlier. Hazards on saloon lights off.

Re: First Group to be split and sold off.

The redevelopment of the Padmore Street area was proposed as Phase 2 to the original planning application for the Shrub Hill retail park. The old Do-It-All and Beehive were demolished and the road realigned over the canal to remove the awkward bridge and corner round the car park/burial ground. The ...
