Smart Fleet !!

One of the unfortunate side-effects of bus enthusiasts forums is that we often report failings, shortcomings, and disappointments with our favourite operator, and the local bus provision. This can be construed as us being negative, but very often it's because we want to highlight things we would lov...

Re: On the Move ?

Continuing on from the rumour that Astons might have found a site previously used by "Countrywide", - there is a very big site that used to be Countrywide, which currently has space to let -- -- It can be accessed from a turn-off along the A4104 halfway between Pershore and Upton, going towards Kinn...

Re: Revised Timetables from c.21/7/2019

A different version of Forthcoming Timetables has now appeared on the website !! The 31 has been corrected, and the 35 has had the Yellow Line changed to Nimrod ! The expiry dates remain as early October, but all the school services and journeys (timetables) have been removed. I wonder what's going ...

144A

I think I am seeing (using the tracking system) more DDs on the 144 A recently, and for more of the day. I've got no facts to support that, but does anyone know if passenger numbers have increased to make them needed ?? (I know that a few years ago I was seeing long queues waiting to board the North...

If you look on the last bustimes.org map for 33404 this afternoon, it looks like it has done a "jig-a-jig" in ...

Revised Timetables from c.21/7/2019

Now shown on the First Worcestershire website, - and so far I've not spotted anything important, except that they are all shown to expire early October, - which is unusual, as that is not school half-term holiday. The 31/ 31A becomes the 31 / 31U. Timetables shown for the first time are the AST3 (Le...

Re: First Group to be split and sold off.

We know from a statement on this forum by the First MD that the Padmore Street depot is earmarked for redevelopment, so I believe First will take their money and run. Worcester depot will close and all the work will be picked over by other operators... Up until now, I have not thought that this mig...

That looks like a pretty good summary to me ! --

I believe I read that a bridge in the area is to be strengthened, so if it's the same one, that will be good !
