    The recently launched service 301 between Bristol and Oxford is seemingly being withdrawn at the end of the month.

    This has got me thinking, does anyone know of any other National Express routes that have been withdrawn after a short space of time?

    The only other ones I can think of are:

    007/020 stop at Ebbsfleet International Station

    317 between Bristol and Lymington(seasonal service which ran during summer 2013)

    319 between Bristol and Birmingham(seasonal service which ran during December 2007)

    Another one was the MK1 which ran from Milton Keynes to Canary Wharf via Central London. I think it started in 2007 and ran for two or three years.

    The 301 is being withdrawn from the 4th of September although the 302 will still provide a Bristol to Oxford link but admittedly much later.

    There was a 280 from Leeds to Birkenhead via Bradford. oldham, Manchester ,Manchester Airport, Liverpool Airport and Liverpool. Not sure how long it lasted but feels like about 5 minutes.

    Maybe the 301 was only on for the summer?
