Now I'm no bus buff, but can't help but notice a number of new First South Yorkshire buses in a livery vert similar to the new TPE livery (blue and silver). Surely just a coincidence as First rail are using non First livery/branding on their trains?

Could someone who knows their buses please shed some light on this for me please?

I believe the vehicle is a Wright Streetdeck, its a nice paint job imo.

Yep, on the X78 Sheffield-Rotherham-Donny. Nice leather seats and phone chargers but no wifi. Not seen on any other route in Donny, but not sure about the other two places.

They're based in Rotherham and regularly operate local routes around Rotherham. They do have WiFi - the network is named "Moovbox", however sadly it doesn't actually work.

Any idea why not?

Not sure myself. When you try connecting to it, it doesn't bring up a login page, and it won't actually load up any pages even though it says that the wifi has connected. It's the same on Rotherham's and Doncaster's brand new 16 plate Streetlites too.
