Norwich Morning Visit

This morning saw the start of the new Norwich Park and ride service with Konectbus providing the city with all of its services for the first time. The operator has invested more than £3 million on 18 new Alexander Dennis Enviro 400s for the scheme. There has been a mixed reactions; whilst there were positive comments on the additional bus stops, many thought the £3.50 fare was quite expensive

Konectbus Enviro400 SN65OAD arrives at Postwick Park and Ride to pick up passengers this morning
I made my way there this morning to witness activity and I thought loadings after the peak rush hour were comparatively low. Obviously it is early days so we will have to wait and see how things progress

An opportunity was taken to nip into the city centre to see if any unusual workings were taking place and I immediately saw Border Bus loanee MX12DYO on the 10:50 146 service to Beccles (see right)

Also noted at the bus station was National Express Volvo B9R Caetano Levante FJ12FYM ready to head off on the 727 Brighton service

Also seen on First duty was First Yorkshire 66112 R912BOU still covering for buses away at Rotherham for a repaint
