Oh lol, you were too slow Tongue

The brand is a good idea however the 57 like the 58 doesn't connect two cities... it can debated whether its the right brand name for the routes. 

Citylink sounds better for the 56, as it links two cities.

Dont think that is the idea....they more or less follow the same route from Heworth to Newcastle (ie round the Leam)

While on about destination blinds how about same as arriva do. When the bus on put into reverse it comes up on the screens bus reversing. This could stop people trying to get on buses in haymarket/eldon square?

Also do percy main have the depot brands as never see them?

The new website is almost ready.

One new function to the current website is the development of a 'News Room'.

What does everyone think of the new 'News Room'?

Suppose there is always next time if you let me do it unless somebody posts it before i do

56 now i agree its almost the same shade of orange but if they consider rebranding it they may call it that can you name all the brands that are operated by 2 depots or more i can

1. Coast & Country (Stanley & Chester-le-Street)
2. Nexus Bus (Percy Main, Riverside & Deptford)
3. Ten (Riverside & Hexham)
4. Red Kite (Stanley & Riverside)
5. Toon Link (Riverside & Stanley)

will 56 eventually fall under Citylink?

Heworth isn't a city though  Angel Angel

Na i understand where you're coming from but it sounds better for the 56.

I think citaro5284 was explaining the link between the two services having the same brand, rather than why 'Citylink' is used.

I understand how the brand name could be misinterpreted as a link between two cities, but these brands advertise the links from the 'city' (Newcastle) to various places such as Gateshead, QEH, Leam Lane, Heworth, etc.

Ye, it can be, but i was joking when i was said about Heworth lol. 

Its a good brand but i still think the 56 can be used for it to but then again, most of the other routes can be branded as Citylink.

Don't think the link of two cities has ever been the intention. Link to the City perhaps?

I quite like it. It looks a lot easier to navigate than the current news section.

Those circles seem to be becoming a common motif.

Yes, they will.

Gateshead's 3972 is the first to go for repaint.
