So it looks like they are changing most routes again.....what else can they cut?
I heard a rumour that Bay Travel are bidding for the 13/13A/B
Noticed a versa in fleet livery on the 87 in Dunfermline. More acquired from somewhere?
Mark Whitelocks, Managing Director, Stagecoach North Scotland said: “Our analysis has shown that our routes in the Highlands area will benefit from these proposed timetable changes to improve journey reliability, which we know is very important to our customers. It is important we get these changes right and to help us make sure we do, we have issued our proposals and encourage our customers to give their comments. Congestion continues to be a big challenge for us, particularly within Inverness, and trying to allocate sufficient time for each journey has played a big part in this revision.”
Bus operator Stagecoach announced today (31 August 2016) that it has appointed two new Managing Directors of its bus operations.
Edward Hodgson, currently Managing Director of megabus.com Europe, will also take on the position of Managing Director, Stagecoach South, from 1 October 2016. This follows the promotion of previous Stagecoach South Managing Director Mike Watson to the position of Regional Director South.
Mark Whitelocks, currently Operations Director, Stagecoach East Scotland, has been appointed Managing Director, Stagecoach North Scotland, effective from 1 October. Current Stagecoach North Scotland Managing Director, Steve Walker, was recently appointed Managing Director, Stagecoach North East.
The announcement was not a total surprise as Stagecoach North East had announced Mr Medlicotts resignation as MD in June.
This was followed in October by the news that Stagecoach East Scotland MD Andrew Jarvis had resigned.
They are to trial a new express service between Sunderland and Newcastle utilising those vehicles. We are getting quite a few cast offs from your neck of the woods currently! Clearly the new MD wants to bring as much with him from his former home as possible!
Are the olympians going to be retained at Perth/Blairgowrie from next month or getting replaced?
Two more new coaches have turned up, 53813/53814 Volvo B9R Plaxton Elite C49FT Ie just like X58/60. Reason behide that is its claimed one is needed for School contract school contract before PM peak and 15m versions cant do said route. what the other one needed for? Im sure a E300 could be used if needed....
What happens if the duties change? its bad enough already at time on the X59 or even X24!
Accounts are due very shortly so were soon be able to see the real damaged.
