Has anybody else seen the new buses Centrebus are running? I have seen them in Cross Gates a number of time this past week, 60 plate single deckers.

They're still white, so they haven't liveried them up yet.

A nice step forward for them, and perhaps the first step in becoming decent competition for Worst?

I also reported elsewhere (probably worst bus thread) that I spotted a 60 Reg bus in Centrebus Orange and Blue Livery on the 92 route last wednesday

Certainly looks to have been some investment.

I can't help but wonder, however, whether this was planned or has happened because the original buses they were running are not fit for the road?

The Y Reg ones that I have prviously seen are in much better condition than the double deckers operated by Geldards on the 28b route.

I noticed a double decker centrebus in their orange livery - It appears the stairs to the top deck were in the centre of the bus (no pun intended).

I am starting to become very confused now with the bus services. When my car was at the garage I had to jump on the 38. I wasn't aware that anything had changed (probably my fault for not taking any notice in the first place!) and waited at the bus stop for nearly 30mins. I hailed the orange Centrebus and tried to get on with my First Greenzone but told me I couldn't use it. Thus, without any change in my pocket (as Cee-Lo would say), I had to walk the 3-4miles to the garage. This coupled with the prices of fares (and also the rudeness of the drivers) is why I will not be using the bus again in a very, very long time!

There is a "new kid on the block" in Yorkshire Line which I believe is in white livery. Centrebus certainly does share some services with Worst. Off the top of my head I can't think which but from memory it depends on the time of the day and/or the day of the week whether its Worst/Centrebus.

Where did the 67 even go. I seem not to remember it.
