I'm assuming that presidents are the regular bus for the 65 as I noted one working it again today.

I expect that's because it's operated after a morning school contract.  A number of Dews services, such as 22 and 45A, are operated by double deckers despite not needing their seating capacity.

Morning all,

One of the Ford Transits passed me the other day,  it was registered YS 65PTX,  don't recall this being with HACT though.   I believe one of the ex Whippet Wright Eclipse Gemini's has been repainted, but I've yet to catch up with it at the moment.

A green double decker on the 150 today. Confirmed as V54 MOA. It had a full electronic route number and destination display. A far cry from the 16 seat minibuses previously used by HACT.

Dews used 16 seaters for the first week or two but over the last few days it's been proper buses.

The registration number for this black sprinter is CC62 BOY, with EVM bodywork and formally with golden boy.and now seems to be the regular vehicle for the 65

I have heard 'on the grapevine' that Dews are buying one of the Granta Park route branded Volvo B7RLE Wright Eclipse B44R buses (AE12FGM or AE12FGN) that were on lease to Kenzie, Shepreth.
Presumably Dews will re paint it into their livery and use it on local services. They are not taking on the Granta Park contract which I understand will be passing to Richmonds or Youngs.
Kenzies are pulling out of the contract when they close on 30th August.
