Just had a look for the photo on Flickr... It was taken July 21, 2012.

According to the Stagecoach website, 'in 2010, Stagecoach became the first major UK bus operator to complete the installation of ITSO-enabled smartcard readers on its entire bus fleet (around 7,000 vehicles) outside London. In London, all 1400 of Stagecoach's buses accept Transport for London's Oyster Card. In 2012, Stagecoach became the first major bus operator in the UK to accept smartcards for concessionary journeys on every one of its vehicles outside London.'

So I assume by that date, it had just been rolled out in the Stockton fleet or it was just about to come up.

Also... Keep voting!

Just under a week left, but we need more votes! We've already reached a staggeringly high amount compared to what we usually get, but it'd be great to see more. Competition is still in everybody's reach guys! :-)

28 days in February means that tomorrow is your last chance to vote! Do remember that you must be logged in to vote, as votes by Guests will not count.

The winner will, no doubt, be announced shortly after the closing time tomorrow evening. A specific time will be given by Tom tomorrow.

Hi all,
First off, thanks to all who entered the photo competition. I was very impressed with the turnout in comparison to the other competitions with a incredibly low amount of views. Equally, thanks to all who voted. The votes from the guests, only three, won’t count, so that’s 14 votes!
Now then, lets move on to the scoring system and results.

Results
1st Place: Photo 1 (tyresmoke) – Great photo of an amazing Stagecoach on Teesside B10M, working service 13.
2nd Place: Photo 5 (Daniel) – Absolutley cracking photo of a Olympian in Kettering Town Centre! Love the colours!
(Photo 4 appers to have won 2nd place, however due to copyright reasons, will not count in the competition)
3rd Place: Photo 2 (W179 SCU) - Nice picture of a Stagecoach on Teesside Olympian working the yearly 510 from Seaburn Park to Sunderland while the Sunderland Airshow takes place.
4th Place: Photo 4 (CumbrianJosh) – A fantastic photo of a B10M on the 685, bet that was a cracking ride!
5th Place: Photo 6 (Brandon) – Great photo of a Stagecoach in Cumbria coach working the 685!

Finally, the them for next month will be 'Buses by Bridges' chosen by this months winner, tyresmoke. Basically, a bus with a bridge visible in the photo. I am aiming for a big amount of entries this month, which will be impressive!
