  • Reading Transport Fleet List: Two unexpected additions are ADL Enviro 400 1210/11 KX59 GNU/V from the University of Portsmouth. They are currently plain white without fare boxes or assault screens, and will be repainted into fleet livery over the summer. They are temporarily being used on a new contract for Chiltern Edge School which will be covered by two former route 5/6 Olympuses from 839/49/61 from September, again once repainted into generic livery. All of the long Scania OmniDekkas 801-10 are also to be retained in the fleet. It is likely that four will end up being used on Vodafone work, four will be used to displace under utilised 214-7 from the term time only route 21A operations following a heavy refurbishment, and two will be generic. The combination of generic 211-3, released 214-7 and 1210/11 will then be used to convert another route to E400 operation.

  • Thames Travel Fleet List: 828/30/31/32 are on loan from Oxford Bus Company to allow other vehicles to cover new contracts which started on 1 June pending the arrival of some Pointer darts from Go North East. Van 992 is to be withdrawn imminently. Thanks to Ralph Adams for this.
  • Weavaway Travel Fleet List: Former fleet member Y8 OVA has been reacquired from NovaBussing, now configured as an executive sleeper with 32 seats or 12 beds with 16 seated. Thanks to David Wilder for this.
