Why do some journeys never seem to track on the app?

I've been trying to work out which depots runs all the misc works and scholars, and certain ones never seem to appear on the app every day, the same journeys each time.

Some of the morning 90s never appear neither do the same couple of short 94s. Emmanuel College always seems to be one bus short, always the same one. The 525 never appears. It can't be the same actual vehicles each time.

Ive noticed none of the Nexus routes in Sunderland do either 8,135/6,700 etc even though they appear on the list when you click on an individual stop

Same with the scholars in North Tyneside which has became a pain for me in the mornings

I believe the two morning 90s that don't live track are those operated by Hexham before going onto the 689.

The morning extra 12 to Blaydon only now seems to be a Metrocentre Mini, does anyone know what the 49 streetlite that used to do it now does?


The first couple of 64/95s always seems to be a black omnidekka (assuming the app is right)


Also, who operates the Tanfield School 836 these days, that’s another one that doesn’t track?
#6
AM 836 is Chester-le-Street, running onto the 34A afterwards.

PM is presumably Stanley using the Omnicity that used to do the St Bede’s 822, which is now operated by Hexham running off the 689.

The 49 Streetlite does a 10X.

49 streetlite does a 10X then the short 12 to Blaydon.

The Metrocentre mini runs light from Newcastle to Metrocentre after doing a 12 and goes back on the road 0924 M8 ex Metrocentre.

The first 95 then 64 is a Jewish Schools bus, as is the 894 Winlaton to Emmanuel College. Both head onto Jewish Schools duties afterwards.
#9
I’m guessing that means that the Gemini that used to do a 10X now does a scholars before going onto the Tyne Valley Ten.

How many Jewish Scholars duties are there in total, just those two? They’ve always been a mystery.

Is that not the 834?

I drove to and from Beamish from Corbridge today, (9:45am out and 3:45pm back) and met several NIS buses (mainly Toonlink) on the A693 but none actually in service.

As it is school holidays these were not school services relocating, unless they normally run off school runs.

County Durham and Gateshead are back in this week. Northumberland, North Tyneside and Newcastle are off this week

Apologies I’ve got two more.

M6 that starts at Crookgate Pack Horse at 0855, what does this do before hand

And which depot runs the 834 if it’s no longer connected to the 34?
#15
Has the FAB 56 B9 which went in for repaint appeared out of Saltmeadows yet?

834 is still connected to the 34.

Washington operates the 34A that operates to Park View School which I can only assume allows Chester-le-Street to operate the 836 too.
#19
Looks like 5395 has broken down at Chester-le-Street.
#20
Which buses are operating the 901 today?, is it all buses from Deptford?
