  Bus deliveries through Birkenhead Docks
Posted by: gka472l - 19/03/2019 16:51 - No Replies

Unusually, there are a few new buses on delivery from Wrights via Twelve Quays here in Birkenhead, usually most go via Heysham, although have seen buses on odd occasions over the last few years, some LT's came this way....

Unknown white Streetdeck (possibly for Somerset Passenger Solutions?)

Three Wright bodied deckers for KMB, Hong Kong (one behind the white one above)

and WH31124 for Tower Transit in London, one of 28 for route 25 (despite 308 on the blinds)

  Merseytravel: Bus service Consultations
Posted by: iMarkeh - 13/02/2019 03:31 - Replies (45)

I have created this thread because there currently isn't one and a lot of the current bus consultations are regarding tendered services so this will help keep them in a neat thread compared to posting in the individual operator threads.

Anyway, 2 brand new consultations have popped up
Basically, remove Roseheath Drive around Halewood (which is something Merseytravel should have done when the 163/263 were around but that is a different story)
Also the 3A will divert via Hartsbourne Estate. (which interestingly enough will provide much earlier and much later services than the Belle Vale Circulars which is the provision it is supposedly there to cover)

Due to punctuality issues, the proposal is
1 - Keep the route half hourly but one bus each hour will serve Mains Estate and the other Dymchurch Estate
2 - Keep the exact same route but reduce the frequency to every 40 minutes.

No news on these yet. It is taking them a long time to review the feedback on these services compared to the likes of the 106.

  Bus Tracking website
Posted by: gka472l - 12/02/2019 17:28 - Replies (20)

Not sure if this has been mentioned on here but there is a new website which shows tracking (with fleetnumber/reg) for many buses across the country, locally only Cumfybus is on (although the odd Peoplesbus on the 723 shows too)…...coverage seems to have tripled in the last month with new fleets/areas being added almost's hoping that Stagecoach & Arriva in Merseyside eventually gets added....

  Successful Hydrogen Bus Grant for Merseyside
Posted by: gilesbus1 - 07/02/2019 23:09 - Replies (22)

Looks as though another biding scheme for buses has also been awarded that will see Hydrogen buses going onto Merseyside for operation in Liverpool and St Helens.

Didn't know anything about this until I just found it in a google search. This is a different fund to the Governments Green Bus Fund and this funding looks to be coming from elsewhere.
