Go North West - FLEETNEWS ONLY - NO STRIKE TALK!
RE: Go North West - FLEETNEWS ONLY - NO STRIKE TALK!
So why put Vinyl's on the buses saying better buses are on their way and claiming the B7s are only a stop-gap until the these replacements arrive when in reality this isn't the case? Either Queens Road are getting replacements or their not?

Surely if the B7s are only a temporary measure now something has to replace them shortly? So as I've asked what is due to replace them?

I can only repeat what’s been said elsewhere. The B7’s are to remain while the last batch of citaros are prepped for service and while the rest of the fleet is upgraded to meet the new emissions standards.

What emissions standards do these Citaros meet? Cheers

I think the key is the ambiguity of the word better.

Better could merely refer to the exhaust upgrades on the existing fleet.

Exactly ‘better’ as in better for the environment.

How many Citaroes have Go Northwest got now? Is there many more to enter service as I've recently seen the Cross City ones and the generic Go Northwest ones on 41.

Think it’s around 23. They are now in use but I think it’s fair to say they are dogged with problems.
