Not worth doing this yet. As currently they will 2 depots if they close Eccles they will get 0 from TFGM for when they lose that area in 2025. as it could be they lose Bolton but keep Eccles. as it a small unit they may not buy that depot.

RE: Greater Manchester Tenders
With the demise of MCT and First not really having any interest at all, Rosso have got a little bit of an advantage now in Oldham/Rochdale and to a degree Bury. Only issue with Rosso is they seem to have a constant shortage of drivers which may cause them issues in the future.

RE: Greater Manchester Tenders
Have Rosso at Rochdale actually got enough vehicles to operate these services or will they have to acquire some from somewhere?

New vehicles are incoming to the fleet. A number of ex Nottingham Enviro200s have been purchased and are expected at Team Pennine which could result in some solos being passed over to Rosso

Oh dear. The last handful of solos that came from ‘team Pennine’ or Yorkshire tiger look very nice all painted in Rosso yellow etc, they have even had seat re-trims, but they spend more time broken down than they do in service.
Seems to be every other day in Bury I see one being attended to by engineers.

If that is the case wouldn't it make sense for Stagecoach to extend the 76 to Derker instead of launching a new standalone service but would that be too much common sense by both parties?

Presumably the two services wouldn't line up very well, extending the 76 would would extend the drivers duty times, things like meal breaks would have to then be adjusted, say a driver does his first half on a 76, has a break then goes out on a different route, duty times on the other routes then need adjusting, why go to so much hassle when as a tender the cost of an additional bus with a couple of extra duties will have been factored in, and covered by TfGM?

Also to take into account, the 76 is a very easily delayed service, any delay on a 76 arriving into Oldham causes the 411 section to Derker to be late, with some hefty fines from TfGM.
