Roughly 75% of First Kernows network is commercial these days it has been said elsewhere and they are already looking at opportunities to commericalise parts of the tendered stuff so could be interesting times ahead. Plenty of comments are a lot of the work is also additional to what is already operated by tender, i.e. additional routes and increased frequencies.
