New 580 Commences

The new 580 service, connecting Great Yarmouth with Beccles and Bungay, started today. It operates via the new A12 / A143 link road to connect the three centres with the James Paget Hospital and Gorleston High Street
The 580 Waveney Line operated by BorderBus 104 (BB62BUS) turns into Gorleston High Street this afternoon
The service appeared to be operated solely by Beccles based BorderBus, despite rumours that Simonds of Botesdale would share responsibilities. The latter will eventually run a connecting Diss - Harleston - Bungay - Beccles service from the end of the month connecting with the BorderBus 580 under the 'Waveney Line' branding
Borderbus 103  (BB09BUS) devoid of any passengers at Gorleston High Street
The appearance of a new operator in the town is to be welcomed and makes for additional interest for the enthusiast
No. 102 (BB59BUS) heads for Great Yarmouth this morning and is pictured on Southtown Road
