    I don't understand this. How do you install radios instead of drivers cleaning? Do the radios magically clean the buses?

    Maybe the radio only plays the Rose Royce song Car Wash (substituting Bus for Car) once at the depot :lol:

    The ones I used to see were portable/personal radios belonging to drivers.

    The drivers clean the buses at the end of their shift. In return, Jim has radios installed on all of his buses.

    When MTL brought Northern Counties Palatine II, Volvo Olympians for Wirral Peninsula cross river routes, they had speakers fitted inside the vehicles, with Radio on, passengers complained & the radio was subsequently disconnected

    I used to regularly travel on a National Express journey between Leeds and Birmingham (a weekend extra contracted out to a private hire operator) where the drivers would regularly have the radio on although they normally had it at a volume so you could only hear it if you were sitting at the front. One of their drivers once suggested that having the radio on allowed them to get traffic updates.

    Have on a number of occasions been on South Gloucestershire Bus and Coach vehicles where the radio has been played. Some buses where the driver had one in their cab but have also been on journeys being worked by coaches where it has been played at full volume.

    Thanks. That makes rather more sense.
