Stagecoach North East: Latest News & Discussion - July 2019
All Busways minibus services became Tyne and Wear omnibus company when there were bought out, originally before the 32 came onto the scene the 31 was axed between Sunderland and Seaburn Camp section and replaced by new service 17 which lasted quite awhile until stagecoach axed all minibus operations when there streamlined there services

It was the 32 that went to Seaburn (Sundays only) before the 31 came on
the scene, I believe?  The 31 first appeared as that joint service in
1988 whereas the 32 started back in 1987.  When the 32 went daily, the
section north of the river was withdrawn though the 17 had already been
in operation for some months before that.  The 17 and 25 seem to have
swapped terminals back and forth at the north end too, switching between
South Bents and Seaburn between them. 


17 started 23-03-87 (CBS to Seaburn)

31 started 11-04-88

32 started 18-07-87 (Sundays, Doxford Park - Seaburn) then 11-12-87 (Doxford Park - CBS)





Interestingly I found reference
to a Service 8 which was to operate
















from Central Bus Station to Ferryboat Lane via Hylton Castle Road but appears to have only lasted a metter of weeks in the summer of 1988 - does anyone recall this one?

I've often wondered how they chose the service numbers beyond those that were direct changes from 102 ->2 etc.  So for example, why make a 32 but no 30, or 31 at the time.  And why the 9 was never used until the South Hylton service in Stagecoach days etc.


Busways initially operated a 17 that became 17A/17B then back to 17.  The good old days with a proper network of services instead of a few high frequency routes and little else.

Can you remember service 26 from town end farm areas to Seaburn only used to run Sundays only on the summer months and during one year Busways put on a service 26 from Sunderland to Seaburn camp then the summer Sunday service 26 got renumbered to a 36

That was a much later incarnation - there were three different 26's operated by Sunderland Busways at different times.  The one from St Peters to The Forge was the last of the three and started in August 1994.

Original service 17 was withdrawn between Sunderland and Seaburn camp, service 17 was soon back on the road running from Sunderland-Chester road-kayle road-hylton road-Sunderland, then the 17 was put on from Sunderland to Doxford Park running right in front of George Bell bus service 125 and the 17 was soon renumbered as service 25, George bell travel 125 didn’t last long.

Service 26 went to the forge.

There should be some timetables in the bygone era on the site .

In the Busways era, there was supposed to be a new service 8 but last I heard it got shelved, if I remember correctly but could be wrong that it was going to be a minibus operation from Sunderland to Carley Hill via Southwick

If I remember correctly:

1, 26 North Estates to Seaburn (summer Sunday Service)

2, 26 Sunderland to Seaburn Camp ( to compete against Catch A Bus service 6 along that section)

3, 26 St. Peter’s - Sunderland - Old Forge

Kind of related, does anyone have any of the old TWPTE Scholars or Works services leaflets that they used to produce in the late 80s/90s?  I thought there were some in the old bygone era section but I can't see any there (unless i'm searching wrong)

Looks like Sunderland has given up allocating gas buses to the late 23 boards. But this week the 8 has been allocated the 63 plate E200s for some reason.
