Does the 12 or 19 interwork with anything now or are they stand alone?

15 is the new PVR.

The 12 stands alone with 2 and the 19 Interworks with the short 3 and 3A.

I missed the announcement of the new ticket machines. Presumably this means no more percussive maintenance required. And no more free rides on the 64 because the machine takes the best part of the journey between arnison and North Road to reboot.

I think omnicity4659's comment references the fact that, when the technology is introduced later in the year, it will then start showing on the app.  So, not yet available, but watch this space!

That web site is already proving its worth for the areas it does cover, enabling me to focus my attentions on what's actually working, so further expansion will be bvrilliant!

It's been like that since 5 weeks or so after it was refurbished and repainted.

It reversed into another bus at the Haymarket and they have not bothered repainting the damage bodge job repair.

4664 now carries Max branding. Still applying defunct brands to buses it seems...

1328 was debranded as part of a plan to allow greater flexibility with allocations at Belmont, always thought it was nonsensical branding 9 buses to meet a PVR of 8.

A Sapphire 6 Pulsar (forget which) plus E400 7539 were also debranded to allow greater flexibility with allocations.

No, just 7401 I believe. It's an all over advertisement paid for by English Heritage, not an Arriva created advertisement.
