With loads of rumours flying around about where all the buses ordered for the Olympics will be re-homed. I would like to open this thread up as a place to discuss where the buses will go after the Olympics.

I heard a rumour today that my home town operator Cheltenham will become a mostly Enivro based fleet, with all X to 06 reg buses leaving the fleet.

One thing i can say is that Gloucester's 10 Lower Tuffley - Cheltenham route will become another gold spec route towards the end of the year, had this confirmed by a manager i know within Cheltenham, the buses will not have wifi though as they are not EU bus routes.

15841-59 for Gloucester, and yes they will have WiFi.

Stagecoach have no buses to reallocate after the Olympics; they're all on loan from their existing homes.

Cheltenham will not be going enviro at all; no new vehicles are on order for it and it won't be getting any enviros cascaded in either - what few there will be are already accounted for.

Well, those yellow Wright StreetLite things that have been trundling around after the Toooorch will be heading for Wales, I presume, as they've already got stagecoach Wales lettering on them.

The Scania E400s will be to Gold spec for Gloucester

Streetlites and some Solo SRs will be going to Merythr as has been said, to get a side-by-side comparison of the types.

It is also rumoured that new First double-deckers (presumably the Volvo B9TL-Geminis) will be despatched to Bolton, Oldham, Huddersfield and Halifax. Meanwhile the ex-London Tridents-ALX400 will go to Bristol.
