Like the York route buses, the good folk at Transdev have purchased registration plates with the "three random letters" as Z, A, P.
A really nice touch. But it means that fbb cannot identify the refurbished buses. Boo!
Report that first one from Leeds was a good load. 2nd one about 35. The 1215 to Leeds about half full like the 1515.
But there was an explanation for this apparent success ...
Whilst the original CityZap from York to Leeds was a rejig of the former "fast" Yorkshire Coastliner journeys, we have seen some innovative service from Stagecoach. First up was the SouthWest Falcon from Exeter to Bristol ...
And another naughty thought.
When will First Bus be starting their first inter-urban express route? Weymouth and Dorchester to Exeter via Exeter Airport perhaps, replacing the terminally doomed X52?
Tomorrow we take a close look at the excellent publicity leaflet for the Leeds Manchester Zap.
And wait yet again for the second part of the Stocksbridge blog!
