Konectbus and AnglianBus news - 16th May 2013

Thanks to Julian Patterson, operations manager at Konectbus and AnglianBus we can inform you that...

  • Konectbus Costessy Park and Ride liveried Mercedes Benz Citaros 805/806/807 have gone to Evobus for onward sale.
  • Konectbus Dennis Trident/East Lancs Lolyne 727 is the latest of the former Brighton and Hove buses to get a repaint into Konect's livery.
  • Konectbus Optare Excels 216 and 218 are now operating from the AnglianBus Rackheath depot.
  • Konectexpress Enviro400s 603-609 have been equipped with free wi-fi facilities.
Julian has also said that provided the wi-fi is successful, it will be rolled out onto other selected route.

Also, due to a major car crash in Dereham, there were severe delays to Konectexpress 8, meaning many buses were used on the route to cover for late running buses. This included Harford Park and Ride liveried 600 being used on the 8.
