They also had a B9 on late 343's.

whats wrong with that mayneway??
plus whatever is on the xx15 38 / xx50 333 gen works the eve 331/2/8 so a dart is about right

81/81A and 88 could be set to return to stand B at Piccadilly Gardens from this Sunday after over a year away, while the work to convert the former Nobles building into a Travelodge and M Local took place. At the moment, First have it listed as a 'advisory notice' on their website but say that those services will return to stand B while the X35 will return back across Stevenson Square from TE to EB (where the 81/81A and 88 are now).

One slight error is that they included the 118 in their list (presumably copied from TfGM), which is of course a JPT service.

Nothing what so ever James.
I was merly making an observation that it's strange to see anything other than a Solo on late evening 338's.

Is their a problem with my post James or are you just being picky???

Who's specified it as a Dart?? First or TFGM. Only it carrys nowt but fresh air after 7pm so they could probably get away with using one of their black vans and no one would notice Smile

Speaking of Darts out on lates, I spotted one of the ADL Darts out on late 220s last night, not to sure which one it was as I was on a National Express coach at the time coming back from Liverpool

Finglands day and weekly tickets will continue from tomorrow at the same prices but under a new name. The tickets will be branded as the South Manchester FirstDay and South Manchester FirstWeek tickets.

The South Manchester FirstDay ticket will remain at £3.40 and valid on services south of Manchester including service 18 between Shudehill and MRI.

The South Manchester FirstWeek ticket will have two zones with Zone A at £7.50 and Zone B at £10.50. Zone B has the same validity as the South Manchester FirstDay ticket, while Zone A will only be valid on the 41 to West Didsbury

When is P510 LND due to be withdrawn? According to the DVLA its tax disc runs out on the 1st December 2014 by which point it will be 18 years old?

My gut feeling is that they'll keep it going until it gives up or until December 1st. I'm guessing though that it will give up before that point though...
