Megabus Service Withdrawn

August 31st saw the last day of service for Megabus' service M37 between Great Yarmouth and Birmingham. The route operated via Norwich, Cambridge and on to Cardiff but due to low patronage on the Eastern side of the route, the decision was taken to cancel that half of the service meaning the route now only operates between Birmingham and Cardiff.

I happened to be travelling along the A11 on the 31st, and overtook Freestone's Scania K380EB4 Irizar, registered YN08JBX heading towards Cambridge for the last time. I couldn't resist this last photo opportunity so pulled over in a layby near Thetford to get one last shot of the service.

The recent passenger numbers have been so low that Freestones have been operating a Ford Transit minibus between Great Yarmouth and Norwich to save fuel. LC60XMV was photographed on Wednesday morning at Norwich Bus Station.
