Three ADL Trident/ADL Enviro 400s have arrived with Stagecoach East at Cambridge from Stagecoach Manchester. Buses 19017/47/68 were previously operating from Manchester’s Hyde Road depot. We are seeking information on which depot(s) they will be allocated to with Stagecoach East. This corrects our original post. 19004 was due to be collected from Manchester by the Cambridge drivers last Sunday but was substituted and 19068 transferred instead.
Also ousted from Stagecoach Manchester have been the last three Volvo Olympians in the fleet - 16797/98/99 - which have been transferred to Stagecoach South. Information on planned allocation(s) with Stagecoach South is awaited.
At EYMS we are advised that several recently repainted vehicles have received ‘Go Card’ branding. Those seen so far include 344/45/47/56/72. For fuelling and engineering back office functions the six coaches on loan to National Express West Midlands for the National Express duties previously undertaken by Whittles have been allocated fleet numbers 9084-89. These are not carried on the vehicles which still carry Whittles fleet numbers 84-89.
