Take your pick from Arriva, Go North East, Scarlet Band, Weardale and no doubt there'll be a few more in for it too!

807/877 Peterlee/Seaham Scholar services says 40 seat capacity but I believe both services are regularly worked by a MPD.
I know the evening runs certainly are, the evening 807 works off the 206 and I think 877 may work off the 99 if I recall correctly. I mean the morning 877 used to be by Chester working onto 65's afterwards.

Wasn't aware of the 994 being funded by a 3rd party!

Interesting document nonetheless

I had thought it would have been something along those lines. They're very 'relaxed' on the fares. Generally if you hop off the 4 at Follingsby roundabout and wait for the 994, they'll just let you on for nowt!

You never know. It's good to have a list of the end dates. Opens the opportunity for endless speculation. :p

The 73 is due to run out on 01/06/2014, so might be fully operated by GNE?

I've said it before but Nexus should indicate which journeys they are paying for on timetables.... Even if it means changing the layout to what Durham Council use!
