They've attended the Teesside Running day the last two years. And they have their own Big Bus day at Hull.

Virgins deal with CYBG included a lot of clauses, some of which are in the public domain and place time constraints on use of buildings, staff redundancies etc.
Stanley agreed certain things when they were bought out too. Hence the lack of competing services for a number of years.

Being honest, I think we will see depot closures, route consolidation, fleet disposals, staff reductions and deals with other operators. Scarbrough operated by Transdev maybe?
I will predict this all happening in 3-5 years time, depending on the terms agreed in the contract.




Thankyou! Forgot about that site too.

Why would they want to get rid of Scarborough to Transdev?

May as well give it back to Arriva/United.

- 584 and 585 have been reinstated at Scarborough (possibly only temporary to help out on Park & Ride with the upcoming Armed Forces Weekend on 30th June)

I've no idea who they would get rid of it to or if they would do so, was just a suggestion about how GNE might consolidate and rationalise things to reduce costs.

EYMS have to their own admission 'found things difficult' and whilst there will be money to be made, there's bound to be savings to be made too. 
They have closed a depot or two over the last few years.

Scarbrough isn't amongst the core EYMS network and has recently seen changes in services around the town. To me anyway, it seems ripe for sale.

I'm not suggesting that the Scarborough operations earn quite a bit, but I can imagine that it is with Hull (and possibly even Bridlington) in the depots that would be kept hold of.

The Park and Ride is quite popular (not sure how much revenue is kept by the company though), as are the summer 13, 109 (even with the competition from Shoreline Suncruisers) and Scarborough Skipper services. It does mean that there are a number of buses sitting around over the winter months doing nothing, but EYMS get around that by either transferring them to their coaching fleet or delicensing them until required the next year.

Managed to get a list sent through myself this afternoon. It seems 790 and 791 no longer have Wi-Fi but coach 94 now does.

361 - 366 and 739 - 746 all have "media screens" - I assume this is a Next Stop Announcement system, if anyone can confirm?

Not sure how up to date it is, but fleet list includes previous owners for some of the vehicles.

May help build up background info on NEB fleet lists

On a similar note, the above link provides information on all vehicles that have passed through the company and includes who they we new to and who they were sold to afterwards.

It also shows EYMS' tendency to reuse fleet numbers, something which Go North East avoids doing. Perhaps the fleet numbering scheme will be changed to match GNE preferences?

This made me chuckle. The next stop announcement system at EYMS or S&D as most of these vehicles are based is basically the driver shouting the stop out he has been requested to.

On the couple of these buses that the screens work all they show is the cctv camera sequence.

Scarborough's B5TLs 804-6, as well as Pocklington's 808, have now lost their 121 branding following the split at Bridlington. B9TL/E400 722-6 have had their '120/X20' branding slightly amended, with the 120/X20 removed but the 'Scarborough Filey Bridlington' destinations retained.

Also of note, B7TL Open Topper 886 has 'East Yorkshire' logos with branding for Bridlington Open Top service 100.

As a Matter of interest, the remaining 121 branded vehicles have lost the 'Filey - Scarborough' wording from the branding.

Have heard that both East Yorkshire and Scarborough & District were transferred to GNE. Scarborough & District has been dormant for some time, is it still dormant, or will it be revived (for a possible sell-off?)

I can't find in the news, though this is relevant here.  Bus journeys in Hull have decreased by 4.6 million in 8 years.

Edit, though I've just realised this is a thread for 2 months ago!
