FirstNorwich Update - 1st August 2013

36173 with her Vodafone ad in early January.
For the past year, buses from across the country have been selected for an all-over Vodafone advert including Norwich's very own 36173 and 36180. However for the past few days, these adverts have been disappearing from the buses. FirstManchester's Gemini 37290 was the first reported case. However, 36180 has now been noted without it's advert, and 36173 is expected very soon. This means that for the first time since 2007, Norwich is free from all-over adverts!

Some of you may remember the 'Bennetts bus' which later went on to become the 'Co-op bus'. WX55TZU emerged from Vulcan Road advert-less earlier this year.

The question now is will Norwich stay free of all-over adverts? Or will they return to our local bus scene?
