    2nd Hand Unrepainted buses

    But Preston bus has nothing to do with Wessex in this context. I am fully aware of the ruling requiring Stagecoach to sell the Preston ops. Wessex had been ran into the ground over a number of years, Selling was just trying to salvage what they could from it. Looking back now I bet stagecoach...

    I really don't see where Preston bus comes into the equation.

    2nd Hand Unrepainted buses

    The lower fares come against SOME people arguing Diamonds standards are lower than other operators. Diamond might legally be the same company but they did get taken over, so are they really the same company? And how ever good Simon Dunn might be the Wessex ops didn't work out and they took...

    What makes a good bus service?

    Would you get a reliable and frequent bus if it wasn't comfortable inside?

    What makes a good bus service?

    After some current discussions in other threads I thought it would be good to see what people think makes a bus service good (in order of importance) Such as, on time, real time info, frequency, direct routes or have to change buses, age of buses, seats .... The list goes on.

    When I've got the bus, I've tended to be the only one wearing a mask!

    A question going back a few years. How often and what was used on the X55 Bath to Stratford? I could find old tts for all other services around 2000 but not that one.

    With faresaver giving up the X67 It just seems to me that they are happy with what they have at the moment.

    There could be a few operators who might consider the southern half of the D1, but then again who knows how viable it is, but you'd of thought with all the cuts to routes if this was not viable it would have gone already. You do have Faresaver (Although I don't think so), Frome Bus, Salisbury...

    As said a 3rd stop is going to be built at Temple Meads for the Airport bus. So that would leave the current Airport stop free, unless something else changes there.

    Although looking at it, there is a new Temporary bus stop being built at Temple Meads for the Airport Flyer, this was proposed in Feb so before the lockdown, but as it is classed as temporary Im not sure of the ultimate goal here.

    Well in Bristol the 24A can only be singles. The 5 could be double deckers but is a low priority route. 8 can when Temple Meads is sorted. 9 Most likely will never return. 35 was supposed to be going to double deckers but that never really happened. 37 could if the right buses were used. 72/72A...

    Just 37 I can understand as all the route is covered by other services (Well most) but the 35 I would have thought they might have tried something there.

    What will be on the 37? Or are they going to simply work independently of each other? As said before in my eyes all services that can physically take Double Deckers should have them, and lets face it that really now only applies to a hand full of routes (Well very few in the grand scheme of things)
