Green Bus have some ex-Lothian Volvo/Wright Geminis, some of which I think may still be in Lothian livery. Could it have been one of those, maybe on a schools private hire?
I believe they do, or have done, private hire work for a Malvern school, using their DDs.

Re: 69453

The plan is to repaint all the 69436 - 60 vehicles, with 36 - 53 to remain in Salt Road. All were deemed to be worthy of repaint to freshen them up. With the error on 69453, and to perk up DD12, I have suggested that one of the deckers goes into Salt Road, as they do venture out up the A38 from tim...

Re: £2.00 Fares

DD12 - The £2 fare goes live from Monday - The fares that are currently below £2 will remain the same. Thanks very much bmmoboy ! That's one or two extra visits for me, to Malvern (including the Nags Head), but as Diamond are not participating ( - thanks Tim) one or two LESS visits to the Old Bull,...

Re: Disposals 2022

Someone on Facebook has already stated that 66695 has been withdrawn, and all our Solos too, and this is correct if the tracker is to be believed ( - although there's nothing to say that some of these might be in store, or might get reinstated ) I was shocked to see there are only 3 left in Nimrod l...

Above link is to the latest "promotion", -- -- no sign of the £2 capped single fare yet -- I suspect it's not going to happen (??)

Trainers

There's a "new" training vehicle on the patch at WR today, - in different colour scheme to our allocated one. It MIGHT be 66942 of Bath, and does appear to me to be in the same livery as the West of England trainers, - so this might be the very first sign of WR belonging to a new regional management...

Re: £2.00 Fares

Starting in January, for 3 months, fares across the County (and Country) will be pegged at £2.00 per single fare. So you go from Worcester to Catshill, Evesham or Malvern for £2. This was originally going to be available within the City boundary. If this initiative is successful, plans will be made...

New Ticketing !!

https://www.firstbus.co.uk/worcestershire/tickets/new-tickets-more-choice I haven't studied this yet, but I hope it helps the revival of bus travel , and addresses some of our concerns, such as £7.50 between Lower Wick and Malvern Link Co-op and back ?? Also, - does "tapping-off" cause people to dro...
