Norse's 100 Ceases Service

Yesterday saw the last day of Norse's popular County Hall Circular service 100. The bus used on the route was Optare M920 Solo 7157 VU52UEB, with Irisbus Agora Line 7155 OW03FXG making occasional appearances. 7157 now has no purpose in the fleet as it is too small for Park & Ride duties and is not allowed on school routes. For this reason, she is being withdrawn, sold or scrapped. It is still undecided whether 7155 will follow.

With the earlier withdrawal of Ambassador Travel's 102 service, there is now no direct service from the City Centre. It is expected that the Sprowston and Postwick Park & Ride route will divert into the annex in the near future to serve the people at County Hall.
