Hi all

Thought I would add some details of the tenders that have gone out recently, see the attached PDF file for the latest situation that I'm aware of. I will add more and more detail in here as best as I can.

I'll keep this updated and put the latest info in this top post but feel free to discuss below!

Scott

So those services are up for contract, or have already been taken if you know what I mean...

Doesn't matter, I know now! - So some of the ''East Durham'' services are up for contract. Hmmmm.

NEPO have a number of tenders available from council, local authorities etc.
You may need to be registered to view them though.

The East Durham ones shown as "Not Awarded" I believe were taken on commercially by Go North East. The reasoning behind that I'm not sure of but maybe our GNE insiders can shed some light?
You'll notice some registrations by Classic for the Durham evening work (48A/49/50) and then cancelled at short notice... I believe these were taken on commercially by Arriva again.... All would have been academic come next month anyway I suppose!

There's very little left and what little is left (505/506, 507, 577, 537, 555/556, 588/589, 87A/87B) will be getting binned in April by Stockton council anyway.
Middlesbrough based 610/611 are funded for 3 years from April 2013 (after they were cut by the council) from a housing development in Stainton. Similar funding has kept the early morning Leven Valley services 603/4/5/6 and the funded parts of 18/19 running. Once this money runs out they will likely face the chop unless they are commercially viable.

Let's not forget the Durham Park & Ride is a prestigious contract that is up for renewal in October 2014! Could be an interesting one to watch with so many companies competing for it....

I think the only East Durham buses GNE run on contract are the 59 and 239, not sure though

Any idea of who will most likely be bidding for the Durham P&R when it comes up for tender?
