MPDs 715/20 have transferred from Burnley - 720 is for Keighley and will be the first 'Wharfedale Links' MPD in the two-tone Green 'Keighley Bus Company' livery ready for the company taking over full operation of the 965 (Otley Town Service) from First next weekend. 715 is to be allocated to York depot for use on service 42 (York to Drax via Cawood and Selby) also from next weekend.

720 is in fact branded for 'Otley's 965' - no mention of 'The Keighley Bus Company' whatsoever

New X10 Timetable

Starting 28th October, Barnsley depot will be operating this new service, linking Barnsley to Leeds on an hourly frequency. This will be operated by Volvo B9R/Plaxton Elites 53714-6 currently used on National Express work at Chesterfield but due to be replaced shortly by new Volvo B11R(T)/Caetano Levante 2s 54401-3 (BV67 JXX/Y/Z).

The X10 started today, for the first few days, all passengers can travel on service X10 for free. The Plaxton Elites started on the service this morning however due to high demand, some journeys were instead operated by Enviro400 MMC's.

Believe the other example is 635 (FJ03 VXC). Which means TM Travel are now home to 601/4/633-6/53 in the service fleet, with former Kinchbus 639 (FD53 WWL) in the yard being used for spares following withdrawal following an accident.
