Was on 12070 yesterday on the 900, it was honestly one of the best rides I've had on stagecoach, the E400 hybrid was so quiet and smoother than any other stagecoach bus. The bus was in amazing condition for a stagecoach, would like to see them pick up more 900 contracts

Do Stockton run any Hartlepool Service 1 trips on a Sunday? Spotted a dots 52/59/61 branded E300 (couldn't ID it) on there this afternoon, about 3pm heading through Seaton Carew towards High Tunstall.

It’s to keep the sightseeing buses going due to them being used more due to the great exhibition

Maybe a Hartlepool bus broke down at Middlesbrough and Stockton provided a replacement.

I believe at certain times Hartlepool don't have anyone manning the depot and even if a bus breaks down in Hartlepool they have to send a bus from Stockton. Ridiculous!

27169 suffered an offside front flat tyre just outside Middlesbrough bus station on a 36 to Hartlepool shortly before 8pm last night and was rescued by a tow truck around 830.

More roadworks on North Bridge street until 31st December 2018

North Bridge St lane closures affecting 3, 4, 12, 13, 16, 23, E1, E2 and E6 until 31 Dec 2018

16 Jul 2018 to 31 Dec 2018

During the second phase of work, there will be a number of lane closures in place on North Bridge Street whilst highways and footpath works continue for the Northern Gateway project. The work will start at the Monkwearmouth Railway Museum moving towards the Wheatsheaf traffic lights over the course of the next 4 months.

Northbound stops outside Dunn House will remain open until further notice, however if this changes, further updates will be provided with alternative stops being made available.

Stagecoach would like to thank passengers for their patience and understanding during the works and apologise for any delays or disruption that may be experienced.

Haven't long passed a forlorn looking Gas Bus on the A19.
It was parked in laybye on the northbound approach to Hylton Bridge, hazards flashing. 
No passengers in view, but driver hovering about.

24002 seemingly broke down last week, on the roundabout leading onto Gateshead High Street from the Tyne Bridge.

Traffic from Gateshead College intending to turn right onto the Tyne Bridge had to go to the next roundabout and double back when it was being towed away by Alpha Recovery.

That one has never seemed to have much luck since arriving in the North East...
