The whole operational and vintage fleet has been delicenced with the exception of :

23 x Volvo B9TLs.

12 x BCI 2 axles.

An emergency timetable for Thurrock services has been introduced and in addition we are now operating 14 buses a day for Amazon; rail replacement for TFL and c2c is also continuing.

That’s it for now, not sure when the next one will be as most bus companies at present have yards full of buses they do not need.

Please stay safe and stay at home!
