Unveiled today in Skegness in a special Keep Britain Tidy livery is Scania/Enviro 400 15656. This year, Stagecoach East Midlands are supporting Keep Britain Tidy and local School children were invited to design new double-decker bus to promote this fantastic cause. Primary school children in the Skegness area were invited to learn more about the positive impact they can have on the environment, by taking part in a competition to design a Stagecoach bus for Keep Britain Tidy.

Reserve Fleet Dart SLF 34607 is reported by the company as now being allocated to Plymouth as a replacement for 34729 which has moved to the Reserve Fleet but is currently on loan to Barnstaple. Likewise Reserve Fleet Optare Solo 47600 is on loan to Exeter. Optare Solo 47576 which had previously been regarded as for disposal is now officially recorded as being part of the Reserve Fleet here.
We are pleased to correct a previous record and can confirm that former Stagecoach Manchester/Stagecoach East Midlands Tridents 18281/82 and former Stagecoach Fife Volvo artic coach 51061 are merely being stored on behalf of a third party by this operator.
