Arriva North East: Latest News & Discussion - September 2019

1331 sat in Fram with its hazards on. It's been off the road a lot, lately.
Apparently the Commanders at Blyth (1401-3) are to be the next generation of training buses, to be replaced by Pulsars.

Where will Blyth get 3x Pulsars from?

Presumably Jesmond.
Can anyone tell me which routes 1534/5/6 are normally found on please ?

Often can pop up on X12 when MAX branded Pulsar('s) are missing as well
Arriva buses now starting to live track on BusTimes website.

Incomplete fleet list (showing as Durham County but listing just about the whole NE fleet): https://bustimes.org/operators/arriva-du...y/vehicles

Also now tracking the Yorkshire fleet on BusTimes

How come you can track the buses on the bus times website but nothing shows up on the bus times app

Maybe Arriva don't want to give vehicle details away, same with Stagecoach tracking...

Because it's irrelevant to your everyday punter.

On the bus times app there’s nothing shown not even the bus, but on the bus times website the bus icon is shown

Just been looking on the bus times website and if you click on the icon then it displays the fleet number of the stagecoach or arriva bus that’s running that particular service, it’s ashame that the app doesn’t have this information

For me, the best thing about the GNE app is that I can see the fleet number. Purely so I can see whether or not the next bus is a Streetdeck or not.
If I'm sitting on the bus for 2 hours, I'd rather wait an extra half an hour for the Streetdeck than sit 2 hours on an Omnidekka
Maybe a hint on what may of been ordered by Arriva - https://www.flickr.com/photos/nebp2/4871...ateposted/
