Re: Inaccurate passenger analysis Mr Eggleton?

Tim, I have "copied" you in getting in contact with Diamond, to alert them about the possible withdrawal (/ reduction) of the 37. Like most "enthusiasts", I am not a fan of Diamond, but I have admired their sustained 303 timetable, and their lowest cost operation -- -- they have only manageable debt...

Improved Traffic Flow ?

I would be interested to hear from anyone who works for First as to whether the new traffic lights and other details, between the bus station and Sidbury are helping the buses (or not !)

Re: Double Deckers

Any reason why all the Streetdecks were in the depot today?? 4 Tridents and both B7TLs out on 30 and 44 (according to bustimes ;) ) I spotted that too, Birmingham_Bus ! The last time that happened (I think) they were having their "Malverns decoration" updated -- "up-to 7 buses per hour" was changed...

Re: Inaccurate passenger analysis Mr Eggleton?

BMMO started running buses up Ombersley Road on Wednesday 4th November 1914, to Kidderminster and Stourbridge, on Service 37. Yes, same route number! That route was later the 315/6 and now the 303. OK, this is not a local route like the original W1 from 1928 or today’s 37, and before 1928 they were...

Re: Inaccurate passenger analysis Mr Eggleton?

Is the "threat" to withdraw (or reduce) the 37 actually just a ploy to get the council to cough-up the money from the housing developers at the top of the Ombersley Road ?? I don't know how these things work, and the last time I tried to get information via google about possible payments to the bus ...

Re: Worcester's DD usage.

I see on bustimes.org this afternoon, that a DD (33405) has been used on the new S5 -- -- that's the first time as far as I know ( willr7 ?). Unfortunately it wasn't then used on a further service in the Pershore area, but that might be a future opportunity ( - for single-decker or DD). I like the ...

Re: Replacement Coaches for Worcester

I've noticed 20202 has been parked in the "scrap corner" in recent days, so this prompts me to ask if anyone knows if 20611/12 have been used on the S55 yet ?

Re: Worcester Fleet Movements mid/late 2019

Its on loan whilst another vehicle, I think it is one of the grey Citaros, is away for exhaust modification. Looking on the bus tracker, it shows 64014 as out of service whereas both the grey ones are in service (today), -- could it be possible that THIS (old) Citaro is being converted to Euro6 ? -...

Saw her on the 37 this morning so she must be fixed already!
