Maybe it thinks its capable of routes now then? Its nice to see a dart on the 41/2s again not only a change of scenary but brings back memorys of the R NVTs! Not quite the same as one of the SMART R plate ones though, they where class buses.

Im interested as to whether the arrival of these new deckers may displace some of the P plate Volvo Olympians, but saying that with the deckers being for 71/2s, I cant see them putting scanias on all the school runs so the olympians are still needed! One shall wait.

Take this as false until I have found the source of where I read it, I just seem to recall seeing it written somewhere... Dodgy

Only 6 are arriving for the start of the QBP (Apparently), the rest are due at a later date

the rest are due in August and my report did say all for RF but that could change

The TTs on First's Chester and Wirral website are there but for the QP services they show only their own journeys. How childish that they can't even extend to showing Arriva's journeys on what are quality partnership services. No mention made of inter-available ticketing either.

That is very annoying & quite pathetic, First don't even mention the QBP & interavalibility of tickets on the service change page, even the ticket page does not mention it, although Arriva haven't posted there timetables yet.


Although new First Day tickets for Birkenhead introduced from Sunday
http://www.firstgroup.com/ukbus/chester_wirral/travel_news/news_initiatives/?item=6251&conf=0
Quote:New Birkenhead tickets - great value if you're only travelling a short distance
FirstDay only £4
FirstWeek only £15.

valid on services 38 and 41/42 in full, between Birkenhead and Hooton Crossroads on services 1 & 2, and valid between Heswall and Birkenhead on servicees 471/472.
