Arriva North West - Birkenhead Depot
RE: Arriva North West - Birkenhead Depot
That is correct regarding the MMC's, that comes from a Bootle driver that is on here. 62 is the most common route for them.

These Streetlites are non-standard and were bought specifically for the Liverpool-Neston service so presumably that's where they should be used.

Having said that, the five Bootle MMC's bought specifically for route 55 are now operated on every Bootle route but the 55. Apparently, it's because the stop-start gizmo prevents them from keeping to a tight schedule.

What is the difference seating numbers wise between the Pulsars over the Streetlites.

RE: Arriva North West - Birkenhead Depot
Seems I spoke too soon about the lack of streetlites on the 487. They're back today (Sunday). I assume the person at Laird St responsible for vehicle allocation is back off their hols?

My recollection is that the streetlites were specifically bought for the 487. Although they're OK off peak, they do struggle for capacity at peak times (even Pulsars can be full & standing in the peaks).
