Any other GCT related stuff can be put here aswell - it seems we were missing this thread!

Probably worth mentioning that they took over operation of the Kingston Park Tesco free bus services this week, timetable here

Similar to a post on another operator's thread:

Can anyone tell me which duties are operated by which operator?

// 939:

Any ideas on which run it might be, anyone? I'd have said the 1738 run, but the starting point being Concord and the finishing point being Team Valley would suggest either the 0610/0640 run.

According to Traveline, the 06:40 service from Concord will be operated by Gateshead Central Taxis.

Thought it was worth mentioning these are running a new Tesco free shuttle from Consett Bus Station to the new Tesco Extra at Delves Lane. Unsure if there's a timetable anywhere.

They are also running a shuttle from Gateshead Tesco Extra (from the Underground Car Park, Taxi Rank) to a range of places around Gateshead, I think it was somewhere like Wardley and Fewster Square.

Can anyone dig out the tender details for the 0640 939 run from Concord?
Go North East operated this with a Venture MPD before GCT took over, but GCT have a taxi on there today - no lights on, no service number...nothing.

If I was a worker, and wasn't used to see that, then no! - Just looks like a normal taxi.

I have let the taxi buses in both Birtley and Houghton pass me during the day - thinking they were taxi's!

But I assume they will be registered taxi bus services, numbered TBxxx? The 939 is a normal service as far as I'm concerned, and should be operated by buses. If Go North East can stick a Merc out on the 0610 run from Concord and a Vyking out on the 0640 from Sunderland, with Stanley Travel providing the extra bus at 0710 (also a double decker)... Why can't GCT?
You wouldn't see Deptford sticking out their silver driver shuttle vans on the 939.
