Assuming they have a new ticketing system as they are now accepting contactless payments! Any more info on this would we greatly appreciated!

Why not drop Dews an email I am sure they would be only too pleased to give you the information https://dews-coaches.com/timetable.php

Hi,

Seen operating for Dews in St.Ives  on the 1st September was Enviro 200MMC YW 68OXA.   It was operating the 22 service when noted.  Believe this to be on hire at the moment.

On the same day Volvo B7TL V410MOA was on the 21, and similar W116DOP was working the soon to be no more 45A.

Double deckers are appearing n the Ely Zip service.  A Plaxton President bodied one and a Wright bodied Volvo(?) were used last week on different days. Have the Enviro 200s been used instead of minibuses elsewhere to bolster capacity?

Out my window this morning I spotted a short length (Youtong? maybe, I don't know)  dews coach in st Neots, I wonder if this was being used on the 150 as that passes me, if so this is the 1st time I can ever recall Dews using on one of their services!
If anyone can confirm if this is true it'll be appreciated greatly

They have done the March to Peterborough Amazon contract in recent years so perhaps the double deckers have been out on those beforehand with the same driver

New to Dews (at least on the Ely Zip) is an Enviro 200 YX69YWA. It is dark blue with grey stripes at the back.

Route 22 is now operated by Vectare from September 27th. Full timetable is on their website. I believe it is worked by the same bus that does the 47 Melton Mowbray to Peterborough.

Hi, folks.

I've split the topic at this point and merged the Vectare discussion into the Vectare Happenings thread, started by John Wakefield  on October 01, 2021, 07:28:54 PM.
TCD813? The reg of a Southdown Motor Services, Northern Counties bodied, Leyland Titan PD3/4 FH39/30F (popularly dubbed 'Queen Mary') from the late 50s.
There's all 'manor' of stuff on my Twitter A/c.

AW1 looks to be a new service, nothing currently showing on Bus Times. I wonder if its a commercial undertaking or CPCA tendered?

There's certainly something a little odd-looking about this - no fewer than 8 return trips on a Sunday. Most of the County would be grateful for *any* sort of Sunday service. I wonder if it's a S106 requirement or similar?

Could well be as per the A2B No 32 service Hauxton to Trumpington P&R paid for by housing developers Redrow in respect of Hauxton Meadows. Runs empty most of the time!

Bit of a step down from the original guided busway timetable that Covid got in the way of :-(
