Well dam... lol

Ye they do, reason i didn't post them on here was because they were on posted on the GNE latest thread.
Ooo Friend, Bus Friend.
Gotta love the air show shuttles. Something that GNE do really well. I remember having a conversation with Peter Huntley on openline a number of years ago about them not accepting BuzzFares, and not more than a couple of days later they decided to. That's what you call customer service.

Tbh there's not many big changes, more timings than anything.

Oh dear i think the New TEN timetables will be confusing for some people!


GNE have also uploaded the new Summer 700 timetable - http://www.simplygo.com/download/publication/62423.4
Ooo Friend, Bus Friend.
It was just the X3 that was worthy of note, although that route stopped being useful some time ago.

There's a run timed to reach Newcastle Monday to Friday by 08:10; it's usually empty, and you'd expect there to be at least some business then. If that run can't make money, none of them will tbh.

Changes which are mostly based on customer feedback and also to improve reliability, I must add.

I note that the PVR of the TEN increases with these changes, and I anticipate that 3942 could consequently re-gain "TEN" branding - this time closer to the version carried by the Volvo B9s. This is mere speculation though.

Why don't they just swap 6084 (TEN AND TTX SPARE), 6100 (TEN), 6101 (TEN AND TTX SPARE) and 6116 (TEN) with 3941(Fab56 Spare), 3942(Cobalt Spare), 3963(Cobalt Spare) and 3964(Fab 56 Spare)? Then repaint 6099 into Fab 56 Colours and 6116 into Cobalt Colours?

See this post.
I've wondered whether or not the purchase of double decks have increased passenger numbers on the Cobalt Clipper. I know that it's still contending with "it's gans down the 'motorway'" crowd but I've noticed that alot more fares are being taken between Rake Lane and Blyth from stops betwen Newcastle and Station Road. The loads are also high between Newcastle and Battle Hill and both sides of Cobalt during peak times.

All bus operators expect growth when they invest in new buses - whether it be from a competitor or new customers completely.
I don't use the Cobalt Clipper too frequently, but I'd expect that Go North East's advertising campaigns at the time of the launch of the new vehicles would have egged a few more new passengers on-board too.
Quaylink bus stop relocated at Central Station - 2nd July

Date: 27 Jun 2014

The Quaylink Q1 bus stop at Newcastle Central Station will be relocated from Wednesday 2nd July 2014, to allow road realignment and pavement works to commence at the eastern end of the railway station portico.

From this date, Quaylink Q1 will no longer observe Stop J and will relocate to Stop D, which is located immediately west of the station portico and short-stay car park entrance.
Ooo Friend, Bus Friend.
