  LCR Bus Franchising
Posted by: SK15 GZG - 24/02/2022 22:49 - Replies (63)

It's been reported by the Liverpool Echo that Steve Rotheram intends to move forward with his proposal to introduce franchising to the Liverpool City Region's bus network. If the proposal is approved by the combined authority then a public consultation will take place once a business case has been completed

I have to say I'm not a fan of this idea at all. The amount of money it will cost to implement and then maintain simply isn't worth it in my opinion

  Gwynfor Coaches, Anglesey
Posted by: efanmthomas - 28/01/2022 00:59 - Replies (5)

Hope this is ok on here? Gwynfors is a Welsh independent operator that is based in Anglesey and can be seen working around Anglesey and Gwynedd and as well they gain the Snowdon SHERPA contracts inbetween Pen y Pass.

I am usually the expert on knowing their fleet of vehicles and been taking aloud of photographs in different areas through on and see what goes on. For those who don't know about this new thread Ill tell you anything about them. This is only a short notice of what goes on with the operator, there vehicle wise are mainly Enviro 200s and Optare Solos and double deckers.

Thank you all for reading.

  Arriva North West & Wales Wright Commanders
Posted by: DK55 FYP - 22/01/2022 15:41 - Replies (61)

With the new buses entering service tomorrow and the Commanders are endangered, I think it's fair that it's time to create a subject involving them.

  HMRC Furlough claims by bus companies
Posted by: knutstransport - 05/12/2021 16:58 - Replies (1)

https://www.gov.uk/government/publicatio...ion-scheme

Arriva North West had staff on furlough for all 9 months (including August 2021) and were claiming sums of between £500k and £1m in Feb and Mar

Warrington's Own Buses had staff on furlough for Jan/Feb/Mar.

MP Travel had staff on furlough in Jan and Feb only.

Like Arriva, D&G and Go Goodwins had staff on furlough for all 9 months.

While not all staff are drivers, if operators had staff on furlough for 9 months, including one after things reopened, is that another reason why operators are losing drivers to other industries?
