But a few passing thoughts on the "refreshed" new livery for First Bus.
We are told that local management will have freedom to "adapt" the national livery to suit local marketing. This has happened recently in Stoke on Trent.
And we are still waiting to see how First's Olympic fleet will be presented.
fbb understands that all these "trial" liveries will be on the road today before 12 noon.
Special thanks to Ali Porlof who has tirelessly toured First's depots posing as a shapely but demure female bus spotter. As such a beast is very rare indeed (if not totally extinct!) she has been treated with consummate "politesse" rather than being offered the order of the boot! Thanks Alison.
** Purple People Eater (a creature that ate purple people, incidentally, not as in the busway, something purple that "eats" people) was an amusing little ditty sung by Sheb Wooley ...
Not a lot of people know that.
