Well that didn't last long did it.

Looks like they have gone t*ts up.
It was inevitable really with them running R reg Beavers and P reg darts and missing trips left right and centre.

I'd heard they hadn't paid drivers for a little while, and couldn't afford the fuel.

I suppose it takes a lot of money to set up a bus company,and you should expect to lose money in the first few months which is why you need a lot of working capital to start with.
Seems like the money ran out which is unfortunate for the drivers who didn't get paid.

If Metro also owed them for muppets & Metrocards, well, that would screw up cash flow too.

They also apparently sacked the person with the licenses Laughing


Yorkshire Line ceases trading services 53, 105, 106 and X10.
It has now been confirmed that with immediate effect, Friday 20 May 2011, that Yorkshire Line no longer operate any services.

Yorkshire Line's service have operated on a commercial basis and have received no direct funding from Metro. Similar routes operated by Arriva and First are not affected and continue to operate.

As far as I am aware the owner is one of the Mechanics at a small Huddersfield depot and he is just sticking to his mini buses now (Private Hires)
