These are related to management changes made last month which saw Michelle appointed Interim Regional Director (North) and Darren Roe being appointed Interim Managing Director Stagecoach East.

I understand that Michelle is now register as a Director at all the North area companies and that Rupert Cox, the MD at Stagecoach West who is Interim Regional Director (South) is now listed as a Director at all of the (South) area companies.

Indeed, one of the green Babraham P&R vehicles was running 13's this morning. Much like the last service reduction I imagine the P&R fleet will remain out while older vehicles get delicenced.

Stagecoach East
With Busway service reductions coming into force from the end of January 2021, just one double deck vehicle remains in service from Fenstanton depot. This is Scania/Enviro 400MMC 15291, which is generally seeing use on non-Busway services. The twelve Enviro 400XLB tri-axle vehicles are all out of use with 13901-911 parked up and 13912 remaining away at ADL Harlow for major roof repairs.

The one surviving "P&R" service in Cambridge at the moment (Newmarket Rd service PR2) has featured quite a variety over the past few days on the still operating peak time service to and from Stetchworth. Today E300 GX10HBY 27643 did the honours on the morning run, but I've seen former Busway Scanias on it. The bustimes tracker even reports that electric E400 14033 did the evening peak run on Tuesday!

A new timetable has come into force today on the Busway with a 20 minute frequency on each route during the peak periods Mondays to Fridays.  Saturday and Sunday timetables seem unchanged.  Presumably this is to cater for students returning to school/college.  It is noticeable that the 20 min frequency kicks before 3 pm.  Passing the St. Ives P & R site earlier this afternoon, there were a number of double deckers parked up which I assume were ready to provide duplicates for the busier journeys. 
Four off peak Monday to Friday journeys have been added to the V2, running between March and St. Ives via Chatteris and Warboys.  These are apparently funded by the Combined Authority.

Are you sure about there being new Busway timetables from today? I can find no evidence on the Stagecoach website, and I haven't received any notification about such a change (they normally let me know if there are significant changes planned). The revised V2 is as you describe, but actually started last Monday.

Slightly puzzled. Can you provide a source?

I received an email from Stagecoach, timed at 11:42 am yesterday, which has details of these changes and others.  Here is the link https://email.stagecoachbus.co.uk/50SA-C1SJ-D10A9A920DF8929DJUERB093B9A1600628F85/cr.aspx .  The email makes reference to the changes taking place from 7th March but on checking again, the timetable is dated 24th January so now I'm puzzled.

Stagecoach have sent out a service update email with links to the new timetables on certain routes from 11 April including re-instatement of the Cambridge Park and Ride services. Of interest is all the pink highlighting of stops where the times are approximate and customer should be there before the time quoted in the timetable. This link https://tiscon-maps-stagecoachbus.s3.amazonaws.com/Timetables/East/APRIL%202021/11%2011.04.2021.pdf is to the service 11 timetable which seems to be almost all in pink.  It is new to me.  Has anyone seen it before?

The timetable requires you to be at subsequent stops earlier than the bus will depart a prior timing point. That's confusing.

Stagecoach East

It has been confirmed that Enviro 200 36320 is not due here from Stagecoach London and was officially reported in error. The other six vehicles due, 36306-308/321-323, will be allocated to Cambridge for use on a new contract. Of these 36321, repainted into Stagecoach ‘Local’ livery arrived at Bedford depot on 13th March 2021.

The company has reported that withdrawn Dart SLF 34534 will be going to Cambridgeshire Police.

Now back in the operational fleet at Bedford are Dart SLFs 34538 and 34830 along with Enviro 200s 36041, 36063 and 36065.

I suppose there is a sort of logic behind the white lines/pink lines idea in the timetable. Operationally it has some merits.

Presumably the times on ‘white lines’ are considered formal timing points from where a driver should not be departing early whereas the timings on ‘pink lines’ are less formal passing times. This avoids a driver having to check the timetable at each location and not have to hold back departing early.

On one hand this system will help quell the over enthusiasm of wayward drivers who may have less regard to running early and on another, for those members of the general public that have difficulty with their own timekeeping, it gives them a bit of a prod to get a move on. All in all it should hopefully help reduce passenger complaints.


In a previous posting it was asked if anyone knew of similar systems with other operators. I am aware of the odd one or two in the past but cannot recall specifics. One loosely related parallel was that for many years the timetables of Associated Motorways and Royal Blue didn’t show an actual time at some of the intermediate villages/locations on their coach service routes. Instead they showed a small ‘x’ with a footnote ‘Special request stop. Time to be taken from previous timed halt’.

On the Great Yarmouth to Cheltenham service Cambridge Airport was one such example. Timed halts either side were at Newmarket and Drummer Street, Cambridge. In the Summer 1972 timetable the westbound service was allowed 28 minutes from Newmarket to Drummer Street so the timing on a ticket issued from the Airport stop (if there were that many boarding there) would mean a passenger having to stand there for something like 20 or so minutes in addition to any personal buffer allowance the passenger personally made.

Despite the length of that journey there were only two such non timed halts on that particular service unlike some of the other services that had lots more. This is a link to that timetable:

Any information as to what this new contract is at Cambridge? Presumably something fairly simple like a works contract, given the procurement of older ex-London vehicles for it.

During these periods of reduced service companies have delicensed a proportion of their fleet, these haven't left the fleet and can be returned to service given sufficient notice (they would probably need a return to service check and to be re-taxed), but they are not immediately available for service in the case of routine pertubation.

Alternatively this is simply a pre-emptive response to the most common follow up from customers when complaining about overloading or missing journeys, that of "why don't you just send out another bus?" as if all operators have an infinite supply of spare buses sat available at no cost.  Additionally with social distancing requiring some level of duplication, both long-term scheduled and more ad-hoc, the vehicle requirement may not be as low as the basic service provision may indicate - at least to the casual passenger - and this is just emphasising they have released any spare resource they had sat in the depot to deal with whatever is being referred to.

This is odd. The latest timetable shows only A & B operating at the weekend.

I can only surmise that they were operating as duplicate services to either the A or the B as far as Regent Street, then returning via Parkside, displaying route C so there was no way that passengers would think that it was a through service to Addenbrookes hospital and Trumpington park-and-ride.

That route was tried once (once too many times) with a double-decker.

Due to government restrictions, we have to limit the number of people who can travel on each bus. Nationally, this has led to a shortage of resources as the lockdown restrictions are eased and more people use the buses to get to work and education. Following discussions between ourselves, the County Council and Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority, the decision has been made to temporarily suspend the Milton Park & Ride service from Monday 10th May 2021, in order to move the resources onto routes that are seeing a greater demand for services. This temporary suspension of service will allow for extra buses to be provided, initially on Route 13 and other routes that are experiencing capacity issues, where appropriate.

Hmm. this is kind of what I was worried about - that the current service levels would be treated as the new baseline :(

Passengers currently using the Milton Park and Ride service are advised to use Newmarket Road or Madingley Road Park and Ride as an alternative until the limit on passenger numbers is increased and we can resume normal operation.

We apologise for any inconvenience this decision may cause but hope that passengers will understand that the issue is one being experienced on a national scale and each local operation must do everything they can to ensure the resources they have are used to ensure essential local bus services are maintained.

We were disappointed to learn, earlier today, of this service suspension. We are particularly concerned that this is taking place with less than a week’s notice, and wonder how, when, and where intending users of the Milton P&R service will become aware of its withdrawal.

We suspect that most users will become aware only when they arrive at Milton P&R site, and will then drive into the city centre.
