Bank Holiday Bonanza!
« on: April 22, 2011, 11:53:05 am »
There is a bit of a bus bonanza on the Reading to Swallowfield route today.
Fleet Buzz is opeprating their normal Saturday service on route 72, providing hourly journeys to Fleet, supplemented with hourly shorts to Swallowfield.
IN ADDITION, Reading Buses is running a Sunday service 82a, offering an extra four return journeys over the Reading to Swallowfield section.
The two morning trips are nicely placed in gaps among the 72s, however the afternoon trips will operate at exactly the same time.
It will be interesting to see what happens at stop EE in Station Road at 1535 and 1735, where both 72 and 82a will be vying for the same trade.
Some shots in Spencers Wood show:
1. Buses from each operator passing at 1035
2. Fleet Buzz Versa 65 passing with the 1034 service 72.
3. Fifteen minutes later, Reading Buses 1028 picking up its sole passenger on the 1049 service 82a.

Also in action for Fleet Buzz are Versas 64 & 67, and Dart 75.
