Title: GDS Fleet list
Post by: Norfolk_Green_SCE on October 30, 2019, 09:24:58 PM
I’m trying to put together a fleet list for GDS travel along with the routes they operate. Any help would be appreciated.

Right, so far managed to get these buses down:
Y413 CFX - East Lancs Volvo B7TL
SR02 JMV - Plaxton Volvo B7R
V424 MOA - Plaxton Volvo B7TL
X592 EGK - Plaxton Volvo B7TL
SR02 JMV - Plaxton Volvo B12M
And for the routes:
S132S Throckenholt - Long Sutton
Long Sutton - Throckenholt

Please let me know if I’m wrong with anything here and if more can be added. The bus information was sourced from Flickr.

Looking at their website the also have or have had
SR03NVE Plaxton Profile coach
T900GDS Van Hool coach
SP08FPG Volvo/Plaxton coach ex Stagecoach.
W449BCW Volvo B7TL/Plaxton President ex London United/United Transit.
And another coach with what looks like an Irish reg number on Facebook.

You also haveSR02JMV down twice, after doing a search for this I can’t find anything so possibly a re registered vehicle?
