Has Go North East been awarded the 33/33A again? Who has been awarded the 13? So far only the 84/84A has changed operator in Newcastle. GCT have been awarded lots of contacts in North Tyneside.

Any of the services which weren't listed in my previous post have had their contracts extended.

Anyone have the new 335 contract document they could share.
