Several times over the last couple of weeks I've seen a double-deck coach heading towards Worcester from the Hereford area. Overall dark-green livery with no markings. Normally looks to have a fare load on, with some passengers in high-vis jackets. Work transport for someone maybe? Any ideas?
That's interesting -- -- was that in the early mornings please, Adam, and was it on the A44 or the A4103 ? ;)

A4103. The first time I saw it I assumed it was a coach hired to take seasonal workers to the airport so they could go home for the winter. However, after spotting it several times, including this week, I’m starting to think it’s now too late in the season. Someone suggested it may be an MOD vehicle moving armed forces personnel, but I’ve seen their coaches and they tend to be quite modern and in dealer white. This double-deck looks to be about 20-years old!

I thought that was out on the Service 910 Park and Ride... Probably got lost!

On that note, I'm not at work over the weekend so no Park and Ride photos from me. Still a few hours left if you want to rush out and get one yourself.

Don't know sorry, but my guess would be during the school holidays.

33043 was not working the 07-55 Green Lane to St Peters 32S passed my house this morning, it was a Trident 3340? for the first time in many months. I managed a trip on 33043 into Worcester on Monday morning 17 December - looks as though it might be the last!
