Doncaster. And those 5 from the East are most likely for Taunton.

Note that there's some change for the 75 but not the 76. Which suggests that the change for the 75 will be more than city centre changes, as the 76 uses the same bus stops as the 76 in that region. Am intrigued what the 75 change will be. Though probably it will be just be minor timetable ammendments.

So the changes will be Sunday 2nd April this year(unlike last year when it was unusually late May for some reason). Surprised there's no VOSA preview of these changes yet, as usually it's online about 7 or 8 weeks before the changes.

The UK Buses website has something interesting. It is a site that often carries out of date or duff info so I'm generally suspicious but appearing on there - e200 44076-80 allegedly due from First Essex.
Similarly E200's 44001 - 44004 are shown here, albeit unallocated:-

I thought it was 4 x Essex and 3 x SY.

So perhaps those are the BoS ones? If only we had someone who knows (nudge)

The original plan is as you suggested. But hopefully FSW can provide us with the fleet numbers that are moving.

Only other stuff interesting on VOSA in the last week is the 20 changing along with Weymouth services changing (details can be found on Hampshire forum) and those already discussed on the thread (Bristol changes from April, Minehead and 21 changes).

Rail staff using Temple Meads are being advised that due to road works in association with the Temple Gate development there will be disruption in and around Temple Meads station from late April.

Work will be ongoing for 12 months.This will probably affect bus services, are any changes planned?

So would indicate the four are the BoS ones and the five listed for FWoE aren't?

Hmmm. That is interesting. So on UK buses it shows 44001-4 moving into BoS and 44076-80 moving into West of England. I guess if it is right (which I'm a bit unsure of - as the B7s in Chelmsford that were displaced by E200MMCs are moving to Yorkshire and Hadleigh. Only 5 are moving to Hadleigh, meaning that 5 vehicles will be displaced and not 9), then the 5 E200s could be for Weston. The only other place would be for Bath, but I don't know what they'd go on.

It was reported on the FHD forum that it is:
3 x 63 plate from Berkshire.
3 x 11 plate from South Yorkshire.
4 x 57 plate from Essex.*

To transfer into BoS. So 44001-4 would make sense.
The 3 from South Yorkshire will be 44925-7.
At a guess I'd say its 44560-2 from Berkshire - looks like they're the slightly smaller versions too.

Haven't they already had the e200 from FHDB in 44534 etc?
