Re: Further media coverage about Worcesters diminishing bus services

Looks like the persistence of a forum member and several others have managed to obtain a u-turn. https://www.worcesternews.co.uk/news/18026130.weekend-bus-service-saved-councillor-steps-help-pay/?fbclid=IwAR1QrsHvg5whHoM_OF99irB3YD5TyaQnOZOWOgTkRbgOLfz_olsADVwOTWw Yes, a big thank you to Mel Allcot...

Re: Worcester & Droitwich 30 October 2019.

Good news above, thanks Tim. Perhaps First will now preserve the WR network, with no further cuts ? As for the CC "co-operating", -- what chance of getting Lowesmoor sorted ?? I'm pleased to see on the tracker that First are now dispatching a variety of vehicles from Crowngate on the 37/ 32S, thus ...

Re: Worcester & Droitwich 30 October 2019.

I took these back in September (4th) 2019 and didn't post them as I was miffed about withdrawal of Saturday 37 service. The grapevine news is that Worcestershire County Council are going to support the Saturday 37 which will resume working from 23 November 2019 and they will also co-operate with Fir...

Re: Lovely Lamposts or Tidier Stations?

Makes no sense at all though but is infuriating to regular passengers who are getting a pretty rotten service of late. Shrub Hill of course has suffered from years of neglect and needs lot spending on it. Bromsgrove is brand new and just doesn't need attention at the moment so pity they can't spend...

Re: Lovely Lamposts or Tidier Stations?

I notice that, although the lamps are still quite new, West Midlands Trains have been repainting dozens of lampposts in and around Bromsgrove railway station in their company colours. Actually, the orange on the posts looks much better than the awful yucky yellow livery on their trains but you do j...

Re: Worcester & Droitwich 30 October 2019.

I had a trip out today Wednesday 6 November 2019 and caught the 10-45 Johnsons 150 service from Worcester to Redditch which now takes an hour and 21 minutes to the Kingfisher bus station; this service also takes almost 30 minutes from the Alexandra Hospital and runs around places I had never been to...

Re: FMR: Refurbs and Repaints

Why not go back to the future with a nice Midland Red livery with cream trim and gold lettering on the red! I think everyone appreciates 33404 in heritage livery, it stands out from all the blue purple and green of the other Firstbus vehicles. As for logo, I also think the current Malvern Hills grap...

Re: New Salt Road Events

... but the Saturday service is just not carrying passengers in sufficient numbers between Barbourne and Green Lane to justify running it, even on an hourly basis unfortunately... One thing he mentioned was that First get a fixed flat fee from WCC for carrying Concessionary Pass holders over their ...

Re: Worcester Monday 28 October 2019.

Good shots mate. Still nice to see 33404. 8-) Yes that heritage livery sits really well on 33404 and still looks good despite being in regular use for the five years it has carried it. I will bore the pants off everybody photographing it whenever I can before it leaves this area and will be sorry t...
