This is the first Henlev buses post on this blog.

One success is our commercial route 598 (Copt Gilders - Worcester Park) We are increasing the frequency of this route from every Half hour to every 15 minutes off peak, and every 10 minutes during rush hour. Our trial of the evening and weekend journeys to Hinchley wood however proved unsuccessful, and the service will be withdrawn with no replacement.
Withdrawn also will be the 4 Solo's on this route and they will be replaced by 7 8.9m ADL Enviro 200's. These will be marked SDE1-7. The sole Primo will still work the route when needed.

Our Southern region division (Henlev South) are also running well since the takeover of Southern Vectis. A new full time bendy bus route (18 Yarmouth-Apse Heath) has begun, producing excellent results!
6 10.5m Citaro K's will transfer from Henlev London for Trials on the 4,6,9,37 and 38. The other two Citaro's will move to Barwell for work on the T88 (Tolworth-Bookham)

Our new garage at Hayling Island has enabled us to win routes 30 &31 from stagecoach. the contract commences on 1 Jan 2014. The bus type has not yet been decided.

So to sum up, we have had a nice and successful month. Goodbye all, we look forward to the next posts!
