Very nice indeed - shame they couldn't get any ready for the start of the season (7th April) but a lot of work needed doing apparently.

A few updates from recent events in West Yorkshire.

M Travel Dennis Trident LV52HHN by Mark  Smith, on Flickr

M Travel, Pontefract have closed as of Saturday with their operators licence revoked by DVSA and the majority of services picked up by other operators. The interesting part is that a new operator named 'Stanley Gath' have started up to cover the commercial services and some of the school contracts, with others to be picked up by CT Plus, Poppletons, Squarepeg, Watersons. Tendered bus services 30/39 and 49 will be operated by CT Plus from tomorrow.

Stanley Gath is to be run by former Tates Travel director Graham Mallinson, who moves back into bus operations alongside the deceased M Travel's daughter who has also joined the operation. Amazing that they've managed to set up a new operator who can take over immediately.... Dare I say the fleet will consist of mainly ex M Travel vehicles ?!


Connexions Buses have added some former Stagecoach Volvo B7TL's to their fleet, namely 16921-3 (SP51AWV/W/X) to be used on service X52 between Ilkley and Harrogate. Competitive service X1c between Harrogate & Knaresborough has been withdrawn, leaving the 15 minutely X1 to compete with the Transdev offering along the same corridor.
