    They're off the Rushcliffe Villager route, so 63 plates.

    The first one has been vinyl'd up. The new livery is in the same style as the Ilkeston Flyer, with the sky blue part being replaced with the current green.

    Ah, I forgot about those!
    Do we know where the Versas are likely to resurface?

    This looks like it could take a bit of strain off Skylink Derby

    Arriva have sent leaflets to every household in Derby today extolling the merits of their Alvaston services, 1, 1A and F1. advertising a £2.50 return fare from Alvaston to Derby which sounds like good value.

    Obviously a counter attack against Yourbus, I don't know how the fares compare but it would seem that Arriva are sufficiently concerned about loss of passengers for retaliation to be taken.

    As far as I'm aware, they are just being re-registered under a different licence.

    I think we would have heard if the entire operation of all Link bus services were actually being withdrawn.

    I believe they are rebranding the company from a job advert I saw on their Facebook page.

    That would be this one I assume

    https://www.facebook.com/ct4nottingham/posts/1947402718620383

    Would save the confusion of NCT (Nottingham City Transport) and NCT (Nottingham Community Transport) aka CT4 Nottingham operating in the city

    CT4N re-registered them today - so new branding. Ecolink now scheduled to use new stops on Daleside Road, not the P&R itself from today

    A new stop has also appeared on the railway bridge near Lady Bay Retail Park. The CT4N brand isn't surprising, it's been used by them for a while as a short form!
