Quote:➨Stagecoach UK Bus 2017/18 new vehicle orders
The various Stagecoach UK Bus subsidiary companies are currently setting their budgets for the 2017/18 financial year. The current work will confirm that bids for new vehicles, which have already been made, have been agreed. The full order details are not expected to be confirmed by Stagecoach Group, however, until all the budget planning work has been completed and signed off.

We are aware, however, that new Enviro 400MMCs for the Stagecoach Merseyside & South Lancashire fleet have been agreed and delivery of 33 vehicles, with fleet numbers from 10811, will start imminently.

I wonder what's on order for the North East this year, if any?

Hopefully there is, wouldn't mind more gas buses at Sunderland but with all the cuts to services, i very much doubt that.

Would like to see the E's get new buses though, maybe the 100 too.

The "E" routes should be upgraded to allow better competition with GNE's route 20 which is allocated vehicles which have free Wi-Fi, USB plug sockets, next stop announcements, and so on. I assume the changes to service 18/19 will be putting extra pressure on the "E" routes as well?

Probables will, like I've said before, i'm expecting the 18 to be gone by end of this year or the first half of 2018... 2 sets of changes in 6/7 months, both to it's route and times, it seems they are just slowly withdrawing it.....

Any news on 2017/8 allocations yet? I've heard about where 5 E200MMCs might be going, but the numbers quoted suggest they won't be the very first ones of the type in the order.

23 new buses in 6 years? Considering the amount of profit they make here, I consider that a scandal frankly.
