Stagecoach X5 Happenings 2019
« on: August 25, 2019, 03:36:21 PM »
Took the 13.30 from Milton Keynes towards Cambridge today, was only a few people on board the normal single decker, however once we got to Bedford we had to change buses to the awaiting Enviro 400 19893

According to the SC website (go to "Tickets" and put in Central MK as origin and Cambridge as destination) it's £9 single. Half price for holders of a Jobcentre Plus card. Note: for some X5 trips (not sure which, as they never seem to show up on the website search) there are reduced price tickets for holders of ENCTS passes (for pre-0930 journeys, Mon-Fri, naturally enough).

There appeared to be 100% availability of Elite's last Friday so I wasn't too optimistic about getting an E400 to Cambridge on Saturday but 19891 duly obliged on the 0756 X5 so I could get across to Norwich for the snouts. Recently scored 39688 did the 0610 50 and 11126 was on the 0836 50.

Back at work today so 19701 took me into town on the 9 and I see nothing has changed with the 0911 6 as we were 5 late leaving on 37434 brought about by changing driver, adjusting the seat, fine tuning the ticket machine and chatting to the departing driver. 18336 and 18424 were on 9A's, 18419 on 5's and 18423 on 1's. Gold visitor 11127 passed me on the inbound working for the 0936 50 and apparently 19698 was in Cambridge leaving with the 0910 X5. The 99 had 27644 to prevent it annoying me on the 6 albeit it has just arrived back in Bedford. 27523 is off the 6 where it has been turning up as my chariot for work like a recurring nightmare so a bit of respite :o. Oddly 10871 and 10875 are also showing up on route 6 allocations. I knew I should not have taken that Amoxicillin earlier... :o
