BorderBus New Services

103 BB09BUS (MX10DXR)
BorderBus started operating two new services today. The 580 operates between Bungay and Great Yarmouth via Beccles, and I was lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time to photograph the first working coming into the seaside town. Unfortunately though, as always seems to be the case when you need something to work out, the destination screen wasn't captured but I have still posted the photo as it shows a BorderBus in Great Yarmouth for possibly the first time!

The other route BorderBus have taken on is the Beccles Town Service. Anglianbus have operated the route for many years; previously numbered C1 and C2, they were then renumbered 82 and 82A in September 2013. That didn't last long though as soon after the 82A was dropped just leaving one circular route around town. On the 24th of July this year, Anglian stated that the service was not viable and would operate one circular trip on Fridays only. Weeks later and it was cancelled altogether, with BorderBus taking up the reigns and restoring the six-day-a-week service, with four journeys daily.

Both routes now have groups on Flickr which you can upload your photographs of the services to; which can be accessed by clicking here or via the Gallery tab, and then click on BorderBus.
