(15 Feb 2024, 6:12 pm)Storx Different areas, quite a lot of the 553 route is unserved by anything else currently.

https://bustimes.org/services/553-wallse...spital#map - That's the route, guessing extended to Battle Hill again, if it's serving Prospect Avenue, unsure on that but.

Didnt realise it was replacing 553, reads in the press release like a new service

Believe it's just getting formally split now, there's only a few boards in the morning / evening for the Freeman to Wallsend side of it. It's a bit confusing with 3 operators currently running it and 2 different routes aswell, the Wallsend to Freeman side will become the 653 to fix that though.

If I'm right Arriva, GNE and Stagecoach currently all run bits of it.

Any idea who is probably going to be operating the new 653?

Can't see them running it. If it's ture with the 351/359/335 alongside the 19/342 as well as the 653. It'll be tough for them to run all that plus everything in Gateshead/Durham
