Sunday timetables on the two replacement bank holidays. Surprising, considering Stagecoach and Metro are running Saturday timetables. I’d guess it’s a result of lack of resource.

Will make using public transport to attend NUFC match on the Monday a little harder for some tho I’m sure by then the govt will have eroded any remaining confidence in public transport to a level that make Uber shares surge
Wistfully stuck in the 90s
Any chance the mods could do some merging and do something about what seems like a million boxing day/Christmas threads please?

Coupled in a stack of overcrowding on the services that are running and there will no doubt be such a big drop in confidence, operators won't be able to blame the tories any more.

311 yet again running (don't understand why they can't run the 310 instead and serve Hadrian Park but hey)

Because 25th/26th/1st are on Sat/Sun, the bank holidays are carried over to the Mon/Tue

You love a good moan dont you?

The more services you run on Bank Holidays the bigger problem you face later in the year with more lieu days being whacked in than you can cover.
Looks like Arriva are not bothering running anything on Boxing day this year, because a) It's a Sunday and b) Many shops are staying shut as a thank you to their staff for their efforts during covid. And Mon 27th/Tues 28th will be running a bank holiday (Sunday) service with a few exceptions.

You’d have thought they would mention the services which are running albeit under contract to another operator…

Its not that I love a moan, Its the fact that many people use the buses on the 27/28th. And with a lot of shops being closed on the 26th. 
I just say things as I see it.

And if you don't like that don't worry I won't loose any sleep.
Wonder why the 311 is only hourly as opposed to half hourly?

The 306/308 will be running no doubt there's no need for more services along there. Better to use the resources on areas without nothing at all like the 6 and 26.

Same for the X45 and 57 as others mentioned above. The first having the 47, Wardley having the Metro. The 1 isn't running either.

Mind I'm surprised they haven't had a punt at a Peterlee service which aren't usually popular but unless things are changing Arriva Durham don't run Boxing Day services so the whole town is unserved at all.
What are these services Dan?
