Veolia in Nottinghamshire finnly gives up

Post  peanutbutter on Fri Apr 30, 2010 3:58 pm

It seems Veolia can no longer afford to keep running the buses service contract there pick up, saying that there only got them because there undercut everyone else.

From Notts council website
Veolia Transport have given notice to cease many of their contracted bus services in the east of the County from early June. Work is currently under way to secure replacement operators. This may mean some timetable changes and further information will be issued when available.

The future been on the wall since there closed down the Lincoln depot, in February 2009, with all north east Nottinghamshire based at Tuxford. two months later Hull depot closed, with the assets passing to East Yorkshire.

The talk is veolia service in Wales are not doing to well either. I can see Stagecoach picking up some more work for Newark Question

They flogged York off to fellow French op Transdev, who seem to be making a bog of it too. The free oaps tho and muppets will be partially to blame and money owed by local councils to ops is sending firms rapidly to the wall
