When will they enter service?
Also when will the longer omnidekkas enter service, seen about 3 ready to go at riverside yesterday?

Thanks - you may want to fine-tune on the detail included on our fleet list.

Not too sure on some of the liveries, nor was I sure on which buses had which features. For now, anyway!

Driver training routes are everywhere. The test involves nearly an hour's worth of driving.

Ex London Plaxton President PVL410 sitting at Riverside minus a front bumper. Perhaps being cannibalised for spares?

There's two of those at Riverside - the first of that batch to be amalgamated into the GNE fleet.

They form part of the 34 being acquired to operate the Tall Ships services.

One omnidekka was gone today, has one entered service or moved depots.

Massive amount of Park and Ride services for it, according to VOSA, didn't expect to see so many.

I understand these were towed up hence front panel being missing.
