First Bus Worcester fleetlist and average age.

Post by TimBrown » 12:30 Thursday 6th May 2021

If recent reports are correct, First Bus Worcester fleet is down to 60 vehicles and the average age is now 12.4 years. Please let me know if I have missed any of the active fleet and I will amend the attached list accordingly.

The 'Salt Road' Volvos will be 12 years old by November 2021 which will push the average age close to 13 years, even higher if older buses are cascaded in to replace Tridents transferred to Essex. The Streetdecks will be 6 years old in November this year and the Streetlites 7 years old by this time; it doesn't seem that long ago that we were celebrating 100 years of the 144 service with a brand new Streetlite and collection of modern and preserved buses at Worcester Pitchcroft Racecourse.

Thanks Tim :D Some worrying statistics! :shock:

The only vehicles missing from your list are; Solo 53207 & Citaro's 64037/64039/64046/64047. I suspect these were the last 4 to transfer over hence why you've accidentally missed them off (can't remember off the top of my head though) So that means a current total of 65 vehicles at FMR :)

Thanks Will, I have added in the missing vehicles and the average age has increased slightly to 12.5 years as at today's date. Attached is the amended list;
