  Reported Arriva bus fire
Posted by: knutstransport - 04/09/2020 09:02 - Replies (4)

Can't be sure which depot this bus would belong to, presumably given where it happened and no mention of any passengers would mean it was an empty movement, perhaps before/after a school contract or a bus that was being transferred from one depot to another:

This is the second Arriva fire reported in recent weeks with BBC North West showing images of one of their Solos catching fire in Merseyside a few weeks ago.

  Arriva's revamped website
Posted by: MTL0201 - 25/08/2020 12:35 - Replies (8)

It's horrific, seems you can no longer filter areas for timetables, maps & so on, maps don't seem to be available either, the old site wasn't that great but it was miles better than this monstrosity.Hammer

  Runcorn Area Route Ideas

79C is interesting and depending on the time of day that you travel, you will have either welcome or hate the changes. Towards Liverpool you have earlier buses in the morning but lose the last bus from Widnes. Heading East/southbound though, the first bus into Widnes and Runcorn is over 1 hour later and you lose the last bus from Liverpool.
Bit of a raw deal that for Hough Green it seems. I can see it's down to the buses being at Runcorn but still not ideal for local residents.

82A seems to be getting a bit of a raw deal as well. Are the early and late trips on the 500 mainly there for positioning buses to/from the airport with the Airport to Liverpool making the money? Very poor attempts at streamlining the 82A and 62 as well with the buses both departing within 10 mins of eachother. It would be much better to provide a more equal bus service given they are quite similar routes.

Looking at the timetables, I think will now revise my ideas to make the 82A run every 15 mins from Murdishaw to Halebank and perhaps look at diverting the 61 via Halton Lodge (on the current 62 routing). I say this because Clifton Road will have the 79C and the X1.

What are other peoples thoughts on the proposals. Is there anything which you would do differently to what Arriva are doing.

  Dart SPD on Moorgate Road, Kirkby
Posted by: buses7675 - 06/08/2020 12:09 - Replies (2)

Bit of an unusual post for me, but myself and chris217 have been noticed there is a Dart SPD parked up in one of the factory car parks on Moorgate Road, Kirkby.

It is too far away from the road to identify easily, but does anyone happen to know the ID of the bus?

Thanks in advance for any help!

2714 , 4169 , 4161 , 2719 , 4210 , 4100
Are these heading off for scrap anytime soon or will they be like the Mylenniums and just needlessly stick around needlessly for years?

  Debranded Stagecoach decker Northwich
Posted by: knutstransport - 26/05/2020 11:54 - Replies (1)

I've noticed for a while from the train line between Lostock Gralam and Northwich it's possible to see a debranded Stagecoach decker parked up in a club car park. Does anyone know who it belongs to and whether it's still used?
