Could this see the end to PCL, as recently they have significantly dropped in service quality with the use of Taxis on service 882, the regular purchase of vehicles that don't look in very good condition, and combining services to ensure they save having to use an additional bus, and finally let's not forget the use of untaxed and no MOT vehicles on services.



RE: PCL Travel
Seems to me that they have some serious charges against them, reminiscent of what happened to Snaith's a few years ago. They have already lost the Wooler to Alnwick routes; let's see what happens to the rest of them when the time comes.

Supposedly they gave the 470/473 up as they were having issues with vandalism, the Versa burnout being cited as the final straw

Can see this being the end of the 15, been rumours about its demise for a little while which I feel have been down to the way the service has been ran by PCL, although strange that the 16 is still registered though...

Wasn't the 15/16 taken over as a contracted service by NCC and given to PCL?

It will be interesting to see who gains those services, my guess would be any of the following:

Phoenix Coaches

Arriva

Rothbury Motors

Glen Valley Tours

Travelsure
