After finally being arsed to take my driving test last week and passing first time, I thought I would borrow one of my mother's cars yesterday and see what all the fuss is about. 

Picked the car up in the morning and drove from Bishop to Stanley, had a mull about Clearance Bargains (there was nowt decent in obviously), called in for a coffee at my grandfather's, went round to IKEA for another few coffees and get a bit of work done, popped into the Metrocentre to get my £1 Caffe Nero (white chocolate mocha), then called round to Costco for a hotdog and to plug the car in for a bit of a charge.

After that I then called round to a friend's house for a catch up, but this is where it gets interesting. They finished work at 5:30, and if I'd got the bus I would have had to leave theirs at 7:45 to get back home, which would barely give enough time to put the kettle on. Instead I stayed at theirs until 11pm having played a few board games.

Now, would it have been cheaper using the bus? Of course, £6.80 for a day ticket is a bargain for my use case. The insurance cost me £20 (not bad for a one off), and it cost me nothing in electric as I charged it back up this morning for free at work, but even if I had to pay it would have only been maybe £2 in electric for the 90 or so miles I did.

Does this mean I'm going to stop using public transport? No, in fact for most journeys I think I'll still just use the bus, especially local ones, but since I'm fortunate enough to have a mother with 3 EVs, I can just steal one of them for the day and actually spend time with friends!

Couldn't see a way to post on the other thread on this topic - does anyone know that the current situation is with the THV accomodation issue?  The deadline for moving out of Felling has long since passed but haven't seen anything further about this and there's no update on their socials.  Hoping they managed to get something sorted.

What would you do with the money used on cycling lanes?, and if its something different why?, now dont get heated, just a friendly debate, the art of conversation
So my choice is this, build cycle lanes thats fine, but then cyclists should have to pay road tax then no?, afterall its the roads that seem to take the brunt of new cycle lanes, and narrowing roads that were already congested at peak times (im looking at you there Rake Lane Roundabout), i'd rather see investment in better Transport rather than cycle lanes that are hardly (if ever) used

I've noticed this morning that Percy Main had a 'little oopsie' moment and had a number of services running late, and some not running at all.

Whoever is running Percy Main depot (and the drivers) need a strong word but you'd be better off talking to a brick wall. I've listed all the buses this morning that ran late for no apparent reason and have sent them to Nexus. But then again, Nexus is just as bad as Go North East. If not, worse.

18A: Byker [M] - Longbenton
Due out of Byker Metro at 7:20 didn't run until 8:50 throughout.

317: Whitley Bay - Wallsend
6:43 to turn up half an hour late, BEHIND the 7:13 bus, resulted in the returning 7:57 trip from Whitley Bay not run from Whitley Bay to North Shields, with no bus to replace lost sections.

7:43 from Wallsend to WB commenced at North Shields Ferry Landing at 8:31, although due at 8:26. Tracking also shows it being buses first run of the day.

8:19 trip somehow got 30 minutes late and terminated at Percy Main. No bus to replace lost section onwards to Whitley Bay. Returning 9:27 trip to Wallsend was replaced, however, bus commenced at Malvern Road.

354: Newcastle - North Shields
6:29 trip out of Newcastle didn't commence until Silverlink.

Apologies if there is already a thread on this but I was curious about how much the operating costs are for a independent like JH or GCT. 
Alternatively if you were to just run the TB14, TB23, TB29 etc... would the operational costs be less or the same.
