Transdev have named Harrogate based 'Riding Refined' route 36 Gemini 3615 Peter Melville-Smith. Peter was best known as the duty inspector at Harrogate Bus Station and sadly passed away just before Christmas. My last encounter with him was him trying to persuade, without success, a Connexions driver not to abandon their vehicle on the wrong stand.

I'm waiting for a gas bus to be named 'Jumping Jack Flash'.

The coaches and buses of Telford's (of Newcastleton) are all named Border something. E.g. Border Warden, Border Flyer, Border Settler etc.

Transdev Harrogate has named one of its Riding Redefined '36' route buses (3615) 'PETER MELVILLE-SMITH' after a popular member of staff who passed away suddenly just before Christmas. The bus followed the funeral cortege through Harrogate bus station earlier today, bearing the words 'Thank you Peter' on its destination display. The video I've seen of it was rather moving.
