Re: Redditch bus routes under threat

Another baffled customer here. I live on the 52 route at the Kidderminster end and agree that the loadings seem pretty good, the trips around college times in particular can be full. There are some late trips which seem empty however, so I can see those going. I travel often on a Saturday out along ...

Re: D9 5035 history

Mike Some two or three years go there was a video on Youtube featuring an OT D9 with a band playing upstairs, complete with piano and rumoured to be in Herefordshire / Wales.

Re: Dudleys Coaches to close at end of year

There's been a whole host of Royal Motorways coaches travelling around the Comberton Road and Chester Road North area of Kidderminster this evening. As it's near the railway station I was wondering if they were on Rail Replacement, but as there's none in the area today it's not that, so presumably s...

Re: End of Traveline

So, will Worcestershire CC amend the links on their website before then? :?:

Presumably, they will divert to the main Traveline.info site instead.

Re: Sargeants to run Hereford locals.....

These two services are now up and running.

Re: Arriva faces being broken up.

Interesting, so it looks like the UK arm will all be sold off as one or floated as one business. There won't be a splitting up of individual companies and sold off in a piecemeal fashion which may have appealed to some of the smaller groups. Presumably the sales and closures so far such as Cannock w...

Re: Worcestershire CC's Passenger Transport Unit

It does seem to be a tidying up episode only.

Just to pick put a few, the 14 hasn't run for years, the 580 is run by Diamond, and the Stoke Wharf services are now part of the 145/145A.
