Unless they can't get the drivers, they'd be mad not to and the drivers would most likely end up having to rev the t**s of whatever is allocated if they ran a small number of the routes!

Could easily operate the following:
- 308 at 22:10 to Billy Mill (single deck) followed by 22:15 service to Blyth.
- X10 at 22:15 to Blyth operating via 43 route between Newcastle and Cramlington then resuming normal route. Additional service (single deck) at 22:10 between Newcastle and Cramlington only. Would also operate via Northburn between Cramlington and Laverock Hall.
- X21 to Ashington at 22:15 with buses operating a loop around Stakeford covering parts of X22 route.
- X16 to Morpeth at 22:15 via X22 route to Bedlington, then non-stop to Stannington joining the A1 then normal route to Morpeth.

An average attendance of over 50,000 so far this season, so they're straight up lying to you there. If buses run, people will use them, especially if their only alternative is a taxi. I'm sure that, if they were offering a good enough pay, they could find drivers willing to drive the buses.
