Age of buses
« on: January 23, 2011, 10:13:07 PM »
Quote from the editorial page in latest Buses magazine "It is a matter of debate whether First is correct in asserting that  15 years may be too long to keep a bus in service.........."

It seems that that assertion does not apply where Northampton is concerned Viz 38098, 38121/2 for example.

Pity.............

When I read that, I thought it meant that Sir Moir had done 8 million miles!  :D :D

I suppose the 15 year or less life only applies to certain First companies I.E Aberdeen, Bristol, Manchester and much of West Yorkshire, seeing the large amounts of new buses that generally get sent to these places.
