D&G Bus
RE: D&G Bus
Solo SR on the 300 route today. First time I've seen a Solo SR belonging to any operator in service in Knutsford.

RE: D&G Bus
D & G are currently proving a free bus service linking their Macclesfield town centre supermarket, closed for refurbishment with the one on Hibel Road, Hurdsfield.

152 - MX60 GWZ was the regular during the first week of operation.

D&G timetable for new 84 service: http://dgbus.co.uk/assets/84_2015-11-30.pdf It looks like it's something they've decided two of their buses can do between school/college morning and afternoon runs.

Also the new 1/1A/1B timetable which they say has been reduced due to low patronage: http://dgbus.co.uk/assets/1%2c1a%2c1b_2015-11-30.pdf

Variation Accepted: Operating between Crewe Bus Station and Chester Bus Exchange given service number 84 effective from 27-Dec-2015. To amend Route and Timetable.

I wonder if it's in response to D&G's registration?

Bright lights around top of Solo
D&G Bus were using an older Solo on the 300 route yesterday which had been modified to have a row of bright (I think LED) white lights above the destination display and along the sides of the bus with a red row of lights along the top of the back of the back. Why would D&G have done this? The bus has LED destination displays so I don't think it relates to DDA, in fact the lights above the destination display actually make it harder to read the display even if you can see a vehicle is approaching sooner.

Was it one of their ex goodwins solos? As goodwins had those features plus air horns (think the air horns are now removed).

Yes it looks like it was one of these: https://www.flickr.com/photos/34487875@N07/22086499345 Not as old as I thought. I got used to thinking the 58 reg Solos D&G have had LED headlights and anything that didn't was older.

They bought the remaining YJ60 reg examples from Go Goodwins about 2 months ago (A2B Travel buying the other 2)
