Not convinced it ever has served the 'new' bus station, from what I've seen it departs from Wentworth Car Park then picks up passengers from the Priestpopple bus stop outside the old Bus Station.

VOSA registration seemingly wasn't changed to coincidence with the opening of the new bus station as the current one is from 2015.

You will need to ring PCL up and complain about what the driver is doing, as from the last 3 weeks you have experienced a no show and the bus driving past. I would also contact NCC and go to Traffic Commissioner as it's a repeat of incidents.


RE: PCL Travel - S830OFT - 19 Oct 2018

Appears PCL have loaned SN56 EMK to Compass complete with new seats, full Tax and Mot and a new destination screen at the front. It is on the 99/939/8X today.


RE: PCL Travel - S830OFT - 20 Oct 2018

Is MH06 WCU on-loan to Woody's Taxis? or has it been sold? The same with SN56 EMK, Is that a loan or a sale?

MH06 has been sold, unsure about SN56EMK.

The previously mentioned S1A service that started in July turned out to be an evening service which operates between Lancaster Park and Stannington (via Morpeth) on Friday and Saturday evening's.

If action is taken against PCL could this mean all contracts are took off them?


RE: PCL Travel - Tyne_Traveller - 25 Nov 2018

Professional, friendly drivers?

I really got that impression a few weeks ago when one of them purposely sped up as I was crossing the road, to try and either a) make a point, or b) give me a shock.

Who will also arrive on time?! Last time I checked the 15 departs Alnwick Bus Station at 14:15 not 14:02 which happened the other week. Time of departure from Lion heart is 14:00


RE: PCL Travel - S830OFT - 25 Nov 2018

Also they claim to have cars?
I'm pretty sure he means buses!
Although with their allocations I could see the 15 running with a car haha.


RE: PCL Travel - Cobalt271 - 26 Nov 2018

I saw an old Vanhool coach on a school run in Wooler the other day with no legal lettering or Operators Disc. Mr Cowell appeared to be trying to fix the front of it using various tools he had! Not surprised at this at all.
