    Depends how much time and effort you want to spend retrieving 14year old Gemini’s from the hard shoulder of the M4.

    14 years old? The two examples above are 2007 and 2008 examples.

    First Bristol must be a bit short on vehicles at the moment: got on a rather full Service 4 this evening from Clifton Down toward Cribbs Causeway worked by WX06 OMP (42957).

    There were a fair few singles out today, but about half 7 tonight, I saw a 1 branded e400mmc parked up on Bond Street

    Hi,
    32286 is at Wells at the moment. It spent today on Wells Depot but may have worked 376 as this was on the display.
    35247 was on the 7 in Weston today along with 32251/252 and another Gemini as well as 66354, 42901 and 4 Streetlites making 10 seen.
    Would that be the correct PVR on this route for midweek and is it the same amount on a Saturday please. Thanks in advance.
    Cheers, Mike

    Typo error on above fleet number. 32547 is the Gemini concerned. Mike R

    The PVR for the W7 is:

    - 10 vehicles Monday to Saturday
    - 5 vehicles Sunday & Public Holidays

    The U2 in Bath today seems to have been promoted to E400MMC operation as at least two are on there today. Seems as if decker use is still necessary.

    I would hazard a guess that it will be necessary for at least the autumn and spring terms!

    In more positive news:

    Bus driver hailed a hero after using it to 'shield' woman lying on busy Bath road


    "A bus driver has been hailed a hero after using his bus to protect a woman who had fallen in the middle of a busy Bath road.

    Nana Boateng was ferrying passengers from the Newbridge Park and Ride when he saw a woman lying in the middle of Upper Bristol Road on Thursday afternoon (October 19)."
    Also, First has launched a consultation to change the route of the 5 in Bath, in response to buses colliding with parked cars. I would suggest that the parked cars should be moved, and not the bus!
