From what I heard, there wasn't much standing room in Eldon Square earlier this evening!
They were just the people trying to get a bus.

Never been to "On hire to Go North East" before. It would be a winner destination for me. I wonder if there's a KFC or a Maccy D's there?

Were they allegedly standing on the top deck like last Saturday?

I was on one, and for a limited time there was 5 people sitting top deck.

When we were at Washington Galleries the line was stretching to the 8 to Stanley Stand, and he left a tonne of people (atleast 20 maybe 30) we came into Newcastle 30 mins late.

A double-deck should have been allocated, but an assumption was made by JH that there was a low bridge on the route of the 26 (which the same bus later worked), so they ran single-decks instead of doubles - which Go North East discovered when the photos went on social media, and immediately followed up with JH.

Frustrating on a match day, and no doubt another two steps back in terms of customer confidence, but it won’t happen again.

Yes, but JH Coaches assumed differently hence the single-decks yesterday.

Yes rather unfortunate, imagine with all the current stresses involved in planning nobody thought to double check they’d allocate a decker but as you say…how many punters are already thinking taxi or a lift in for next time
Wistfully stuck in the 90s
