D&G Bus
RE: D&G Bus
Looks like 120 and 141 both failed on Knutsford to Macclesfield runs today with 140 and 129 being drafted in to replace them.

Vehicle 140 was on the 130 route first thing but got replaced by 131 that was on the 38 first thing.

Presumably the roads were impassable through Pickmere today as 89 services seemed to be diverting along Linnards Lane between the A556 and Wincham.

RE: D&G Bus
From the D&G website:

Due to increases in our running costs as well as significantly reduced passenger numbers due to the pandemic, we have had to make the difficult decision to increase some of our fares. We have not changed most of our prices for several years, and our new fares continue to offer competitive rates for bus travel. Here's the details of what is changing:

Most single fares will increase by up to 10p.
Early Bird Return tickets will cost £3.30.
Crewe Return tickets will cost £4.30 adult, £3.75 student and £3.00 young person.
Weekly Rover tickets will cost £18.00 adult and £15.50 student / young person
Group Day Rover tickets will cost £10.00

All other fares will remain unchanged.


The single fares increasing by 10p won't be popular. I know of some that already have gone up from £3.50 to £4.20 in the past few years.

Are there reliability issues with the ex-Rotola Streelite WFs (59-61)? It looks like 2 of them haven't been out this month and I'm sure some of them have gone extended periods with not being used.

Just noticed there's two ex-APH Metrocities operating out of Adderley Green.

RE: D&G Bus
Think the driver of the first Knutsford to Macclesfield journey this morning got lost. The tracking shows the bus going down the A50 to Cranage, turning around and going back to the junction with Stocks Lane, 20 minutes after first passing it. That journey was supposed to be straight down the A537 to Seven Sisters Lane.

Think they've got the odd new driver at Winchem and I believe one of the regulars is off at the moment.

AA Roadwatch reporting a problem at A537/A34 junction causing traffic disruption. It seems D&G Bus 41 might be involved in whatever's happened.
