Strange to see GCT haven't been tracking on bus times

Also talking to a GCT driver confirming the changes for the 333 and 335 got approved and they don't know when they will come into service

RE: Gateshead Central Taxis
Just wondering whether anyone can provide the identities of the missing fleetnumbers used by GCT when reporting in bustimes. I'm guessing that these were used by vehicles which are no longer in the fleet, for example, 201/2/4-7/9, 211-3/5-7, 220, 301-7, as well as many deckers in the 4xx series.

I know that SJ17 VCU/V, BF18YRW were owned until quite recently, as were Solo SRs YJ64 DYS-W. I also have the following recorded as having operated for GCT in the past -

YX11 FRZ
YX61 BJK/O/U
YX12 CHN
SL16 YPE
SJ18 UTG

but would appreciate any help in matching up fleetnumbers and registrations. It would make an old gricer very happy !

RE: Gateshead Central Taxis
YPE is in parts now

Gateshead Central Taxis
GCT offering £19 per hour for schools and private hire work.

Normal work still seems to be £11 an hour.

Bold move, in the midst of a national worker shortage.[Image: a5493fe71df84739f335eea28791edee.jpg]

RE: Gateshead Central Taxis
They have a lot of disused vehicles parked up at the depot. Some of them have not moved in months.

These might be the missing vehicles you mention. Sorry but I do not have a current fleet list for them.

Many thanks for all this - I hadn't realised just how many vehicles GCT have had through their hands over the years.

Here's the link to the GCT job posting:

https://www.facebook.com/172838192843628...858957688/

Possibly a game changing rate of pay for bus drivers here in the North East.

Yea I received an email. 
Strange they haven't gone through with the 333 changes. I don't understand why they haven't 

We have amended our plans in response to the feedback received.  There was strong opposition to our plans to remove the service from the central part of the Fish Quay.  As buses will now continue to serve the Fish Quay, it is no longer possible to bring forward the planned route change via Tynemouth Village

That was what was said about the 333 changes

Wonder if the financial penalties for potentially not running contracted services is a factor in this decision?

Nexus?  Something clever?  Huh

RE: Gateshead Central Taxis

No. Operate between North Shields Ferry landing and Tynemouth Broadway

The old 333 used to run ferry-tynemouth-whitley bay so I would suspect it's been chopped and changed in parts over the years.
