Stagecoach UK Bus
We are starting to receive details of vehicles that are being delicenced and parked up as a result of the reduced services currently being operated. Where we receive this information we will attempt to include it on the Allocation Documents that we produce. However, it is a fast moving situation and details are changing by the day. We do not have details yet for all operating companies or individual depots. In some cases we have obtained information on details of vehicles delicenced by checking against the DVLA records.
We are aware that at this time not all details on our allocation sheets will be correct but we will try and ensure they are as accurate as possible given the information we have access to.
