Quote from: konectbus and anglianbus websites
Norwich Bus Station

We are pleased to announce konectbus and anglianbus will be taking over the running of the information desk at Norwich Bus Station after Christmas.

As well as providing travel information for all operators, our staff will offer card-only (not cash) ticket sales for konectbus , anglianbus and Norwich Park & Ride services.

David Harrison, Norfolk County Council cabinet member for environment, transport, development and waste, said: “We know how important the travel desk is to passengers, so I am very pleased that we have been able to secure its future at Norwich Bus Station. This is a good deal for konectbus, anglianbus and for the Norfolk County Council”.

Norfolk County Council staff will be on the desk up to and including Monday, December 23. The desk will then be closed on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day before reopening under the new management on December 27 with a new appearance. The desk will be open 6 days a week Monday to Saturday, 08:30 to 17:30.

Will FEC in Norwich suffer the same fate as FEC in King's Lynn?

Or should one say 'how soon'?

The question is though in response to your's, is it really worth Go-Ahead taking on the Norwich ops given the size of it? Its on a far bigger scale than Anglian-Konect Bus.

First have issued a press release stating that the new shop will not sell their tickets, but made no mention of who the new operators were.
