Yup, the 216 is indeed still running, think I saw it in Trimdon Village the other day, was one of the Bluebird things with no evidence to suggest it was operating the 216, not even a paper destination.

DCC have said there are still plans to terminate the 216 at Sedgefield to give the driver a proper break, they are using the old social care blue bus as they more reliable than the link2 bus..

There mustn't have been any money left in the budget for a fresh sheet of A4. they seem to rotate through all the vehicles in their fleet, including some of the link2 minibuses.

I saw someone actually catch it, the other week.

Should have quoted you into my reply to Jimmi. They rotate through a different vehicle each week, both the link 2 and the ones in county colours. I suspect they must have fallen foul of the 20 day rule for working destinations by now. Should have been pedantic and kept a diary when I saw it daily on my school run! (no longer do that run - now do the supposed to be dead straightforward round trip, 2 buses each way, twice a day from Hull hell so only see the minibus if either I pop down to the post office or it does its thing of whizzing up the road to miss out a bit of the route!)

I give it until Christmas.

Just noticed that Millburngate is closed, this weekend, so that will affect all buses using those stops.

216 is now registered as cancelled on VOSA from December 3rd 2017, so you were correct, just in the wrong year!  Big Grin

Think we jinxed this by saying that the service was still running the other day  Tongue
