National Express UK Expansion:
National Express are taking over the home-to-school contract & also Ring & Ride service from Accessible Transport Group currently being run by it's adminstrators, I believe it could involve up to 400 vehicles:

I think what they're doing is simply taking over the vehicles and staff of Igo (formerly WMSNT). They have, however, recently transferred 3 Streetlites down from Dundee to cover tendered work that was formerly run by Igo.

Yes, that's correct they're taking over the former contracts/staff & vehicles of Igo approx. 400 vehicles & I assume the current depots they operate from (not sure who owns them). There'll be too many vehicles to absorb in to exiting NXWM depots.

Whilst a new venture for NX in the UK and a sizeable one, they have plenty of experience of this type of work from their US paratransit business.

The 3 Dundee Streetlites were for just one specific former Igo contract that could only accommodate swb/midi buses (something which NXWM had run short of). NXWM have been bidding/have won quite a lot of tendered work from TfWM, former Igo between Oct 2018 to present inc Coventry - Ansty Business Park tenders from Diamond. The Fleet size is currently the highest it's been for a good few years excluding the above, the number of withdrawals following new Platinum deliveries will also be less than planned this year due to amount of extra work won.
