Service 43B has been retimed to improve its relationship with the retimed Services 29, and Service 43. Evening Services are being introduced on this service Sunday to Saturday to replace evening Service 16B and to improve the level of evening Services between St Budeaux and the City centre offsetting the withdrawal of the Service 26B.

  • Today, the North East Bus Operators Association publicly launches “Better by Far”, a manifesto for a voluntary partnership rather than the quality contracts preferred by Nexus PTE Omnibuses
  • One final victory for obfuscation! Transport Direct, when asked for a journey to Dawsons Corner seems to want to ignore the real and historic location and dump you to the west of the mega roundabout. Public Transport Experience
  • Red & White, based in nearby Chepstow had its roots over the border in the Forest of Dean but evolved mainly on the Welsh side of the border, as well as developing a group of companies dotted across southern England and south Wales, without ever establishing territorial dominance in any part of its empire.

  • The Greenway was therefore a product of its time. It met a particular and specific need, finding itself in the right place Omnibuses
  • What a terrible shame. How absolutely awful to expect a human being to edit and produce a timetable page for the use of other human beings. If this happened, the timetable might be (a) right and (b) useful to the passenger. That would never do! Public Transport Experience
