Guernsey Bus runs reduced schedule again

Post by GD on Tue 06 Sep 2011, 6:15 pm

Guernsey Bus' services have been cut back to coincide with the start of the school year while maintenance issues continue to dog the fleet.

Island Coachways said it would cut services on routes 1, 7 and 7A and this would continue until 1 October.

The company reduced its services in May as a result of unplanned repairs to its 41-strong fleet.

Managing Director Hannah Beacom cited the age of the vehicles as the primary reason for the maintenance problems.

She said: "Island Coachways would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused to passengers and, once again, to thank them for their patience during this time." (from BBC)

mmm this doesn't add up.... I know the buses have has "problems" but it seems to be more than just maintenance problems...

......THE BOSS......

"Always be yourself because the people who mind don't matter, and the people who matter don't mind"
