Funding for new vehicles is dependent on them speeding up journeys.
The penny still doesn't drop does it? 'pulling levers' and demanding bus lanes doesn't get traffic off the road... 
Having a brand new, electric but half empty bus, which whizzes past cars going to places the buses aren't, doesn't get traffic off the road...

Go-Ahead have also taken over Southdown. They operate contracted services in East Surrey. It is believed the operation will eventually amalgamate with Metrobus.

Not GNE but within the same group, wonder if other Go-Ahead divisions will follow suit due to the logo change or if this was planned separately.

BREAKING NEWS

Brighton & Hove Buses announces first brand refresh in over 35 years

Brighton & Hove Buses has announced that its fleet of red, cream and black buses will change into a bright, colourful new teal and aqua livery over the coming months and years. The change follows on from the popular ‘Live & Breathe’ liveries and introduces new icons in a variety of colours to represent the diversity and vibrancy of the city of Brighton & Hove.
Furthermore, the company’s logo will also be changing by adopting the new bus colours, and better representing the company with a slick A to B journey line worked into the design. This is just one part of a wider transformation as the company set their efforts on bringing more benefits to the community, and making Brighton & Hove Buses an employer of choice and great place to work for all.
The first of the new buses, designed to better reflect the Brighton & Hove geography with the colours of the sky and the sea, are likely to arrive in autumn and will continue to be rolled out gradually over the next few years.
Ed Wills, Managing Director at Brighton & Hove Buses, said: “Our brand livery has not changed much since the 90s, but we, and our city, have changed hugely in that time. That’s why we’re transforming our brand to more accurately represent the spirit of who we are today and the unique, vibrant city that we serve.”

I think its Streetdecks currently on the Coaster.

No doubt the Streetdecks will stay at Brighton to replace thier older buses, which no doubt will lead to us, getting more 2nd hand crap...

GNE seems to be the dumping ground atm

Thats what tends to happen when money has been spaffed up the wall with very little return for years on end. 

It's going to take a miracle for GNE to turn the corner now.
The operation is as knackered as the chargers on their vehicles.

The StreetDecks currently on the Coaster service will enable the withdrawal of the oldest OmniDekkas (up to and including the 57-plates similar to the GNE examples in Voyager livery) - in the main expected to be cascaded to other parts of the group.
