Stagecoach Chester & Wirral
RE: Stagecoach Chester & Wirral
I noted 36813 in Chester yesterday on a Blacon route. Has this bus left Rock Ferry?

Rail Mileage travelled 2012 is 19790 miles and 2013 is 18861 miles

I followed this working an X8 about 8.50ish by the M53 junction at Hooton yesterday morning....

Youused to be able to buy on board for the 32 (£2 return to Chester Zoo from chester stn) before the X8, I remember asking Stagecoach MCSL on twitter the best way to travel there and it was recommend. (What they forgot to mention was that the park and ride only called there during peak season and instead I'd have to walk to the old Chester Bus Stn to catch it Laugh )
Correct. There was an agreement between train companies and the 32 to offer through train tickets. I think that is how the return fare thing came about. Now the agreement is in place on the X8 (except return is now £4)

Given that the ex Coastliner vehicles are not "Gold" spec, it would presumably take some time & money to upgrade them to that spec? My guess would be that they're intended to provide extra capacity on another route, with "Gold Spec" vehicles being drafted in from elsewhere for route 1 in due course.
