    Applying through this would make anyone a new starter to citybus and presumably attract their new starter rate. It is typical across the industry to pay a lower rate for the first year.

    TUPE would only apply if:
    - FK formally advised PCB that they intended to TUPE staff (minimum notice period of just 14 days), and:
    - staff that FK intended to TUPE across were employed primarily on the routes that were going to PCB.

    Existing pay and contractual T&Cs would apply indefinitely.

    But as has already been stated, FK are not intending shedding any staff.

    With the Truronian Coaches division expanding and doing quite well currently, could they transfer any surplus drivers to Truronian, although I guess that wouldn't guarantee day to day work that new commercial routes would guarantee

    I suppose after losing the CC work, Kernow aren't getting their hopes up on any future contracts, only best to prepare for the worse, but PCB can't think their winning streak will last forever, they have enough drivers and buses to find as it is

    It doesn't really work like that. If they achieve the highest score in the evaluation then the council has to award them the work. The school routes, which it is rumoured FK won most of, were way over budget and are being retendered on a bargain basement Euro 2 basis so sounds as if it's going to be a straight fight on price.

    I hope some of the independents will be in the mix this time to keep them going.

    If Cornwall College, Saltash was in the mix for the school/college routes then it'll have to come out. It's closing in July after 35 years due to government funding cuts.

    Lucky escape for 33476 by the looks of it, after a crash happened just in front of it at the bus stop at the top of the hill in Ponsanooth yesterday, original reports stated the bus was was involved, although unfortunately two people were taken to Treliske with injuries

    If it’s in the wrong depot. Or already working when the fault is discovered there isn’t a lot can be done to swap them over.

    214a is operated by Eden depot. They don’t operate any deckers out of Eden. Presumably a 29 seater MMC is insufficient capacity.

    Unfortunately the Go Cornish Trident has had an engine compartment fire which looks terminal.

    Was one of the ones staying long term as well, although given the current uncertainty surrounding routes wouldn't of thought a replacement decker would either be transferred in or ones of the Tridents due to go being kept

    But would of thought one of the Gemini's due to arrive, will become the next 'Go Cornish bus'

    A Tinner on the U4 tonight, much less common these days when they're more likely to be seen on the A17, or were before the Carbis Bay works anyway.
