  • As the London’s media watches from a distance, it seems almost inevitable that someone will look to the City and ask “could it happen here?” There are key differences between New York’s relationship with its rivers and the Atlantic, and London’s relationship with the Thames and the North Sea, but it is a fair question nonetheless.

  • It seems that the good people who lead the local councils in West Yorkshire can still spot a bargain when they see one. Suddenly, they’ve been motivated to think again about bus quality contracts because the DfT has dangled the carrot of a BSOG uplift before them Omnibuses

  1. Interesting how with the 44/As after 1555 it's all 44s - no 44As. I suppose this will probably improve reliability in the evening peak with all buses going one-way round Whitleigh.

    46 seems a bit tight on the timetable what with only one bus assigned though I'd certainly put an extra run from Derriford at around 1715ish, which could terminate at Ernesettle and do a one off extra trip into town as a 43 from Erensettle at 1720.
