Before anyone asks, yes it was essential journeys.... I was going to work.

I’ve noticed service 4 and 13 aren’t currently serving both hall farm and mill hill on Sundays. Is this a permanent move or just covid timetables
Anyone know if they produced printed Christmas/New Year timetable leaflets this year?

Stockton/Hartlepool
Ooo Friend, Bus Friend.
Stagecoach Newcastle Enviro400H,12069 broke down this morning on New Bridge Street, Shieldfield. Was sitting there with driver for a few hours. I think it was operating a 22 to Cobalt & Silverlink originally (according to bustimes.org).

   
There are reports that Stockton MAN ALX300 22062 has been withdrawn due to accident damage.
It appears that 37144 and 39719 have transferred to Sunderland along with the X20/30

Maybe Sunderland has less drivers off with covid related illness

6 routes was originally the case last time they transferred. However when they transferred back to Shields couple of months ago they never transferred any vehicles from Sunderland so seems strange they have sent the 2 vehicles to Sunderland this time.
So what’s the idea of x20 30 x34 transferring to the wheatsheaf when these routes don’t even serve Sunderland

So South Shields could become a low cost depot

Although the moving of the X20 and 30 doesn't make sense in line with low cost, as these are heavily subsidised low volume routes.
