I heard First are loosing a load of work from the Swansea area and further west in wales, Council dropping all subbed routes not just the 200k the chopped off the budget 2 months ago.
Again its what i heard today.

They have though stopped all engineering overtime things will fall apart sooner rather than later.

Firstgroup arent the only ones slashing costs. Its all through massively falling revenue, and councils owing operators vast sums of money they don't have to operators for the free travel. PTE's and councils owe millions across the country, and if I was an operator owed money, I would be suing the council, and putting a bankruptcy order in for them.

On the note of cutting costs I've noticed Stagecoach have started using single deckers in the evenings for the 11 service from Ardrossan to Kilmarnock...I say Ardrossan as it looks like its Ardrossan Depot that have put on Single Decks.

Wonder if Kilmarnock will follow suite sooner or later?

Still is 15 minutes up to 21.30 I think, 7 to 8 minutes during the day although most of the time there are 2 buses together (old Tridents were better as there was no drivegreen fitted to them) then after 6pm its every 15 up to - as far as I know 21.30 then 30 minutes to the last bus...can't remember properly... and I used to work on the 11 service all the bloody time!!
