  The Busman Ltd (Cheshire Bus)
Posted by: knutstransport - 13/01/2019 17:49 - Replies (1)

Just seen this picture on Flickr:

Do they have any other buses and are they allowed to use the 'Cheshire Bus' brand as that brand can still be found on some council owned bus stops and some of them are still in use even if some of them are on roads which no longer have any bus services?

The company is registered at Cross Lanes Farm Booth Bed Lane, Allostock with Adrian Moreton and Joanne Moreton the company directors.

  Liverpool Transport Vol 6 (1986 - 2006)
Posted by: bootlelad2015 - 28/11/2018 17:41 - Replies (2)

Hi everyone

In the new year I have set myself a new challenge - I am going to attempt to follow on the great works of Horne & Maund and continue the series to cover 1986 to 2006.

I think this will be a great project and would love to know if anyone would like to contribute or work with me on this? Maybe even get a monthly meeting where people can get together to discuss content.

I want it to reflect the previous writing style as much as possible and be as detailed as possible, especially with all the changes to services, operators and how the industry responded to city challenges & changes.

If anyone is interested, reply to the thread

I've just heard on local radio that Steve Rotherham has initiated a survey to ascertain the public's views on bus provision within the Liverpool City Region. It takes about five minutes to fill it in.

  Liverpool City Centre Traffic Issues
Posted by: Barney - 13/10/2018 17:13 - Replies (59)

I saw two 86's heading towards L1 via Duke Street this afternoon as Hanover Street was gridlocked. I really don't know why Duke Street isn't used officially for SOME 82's and 86's during daytime operation.

  Merseyrail Rail Replacement Buses
Posted by: Barney - 12/10/2018 15:53 - Replies (15)

Yet another round of rail replacement services is about to happen in order that the track can accommodate the new rolling stock due for delivery in 2020. On the Merseytravel website it states that "high-quality" buses will be used during the course of the work. I assume Arriva will be using its hybrids again.
