When I did my last piece that included ‘yourbus’ (See ‘Scene’ in Matlock 17th October). I said that they were quietly building a network in this part of central Derbyshire.
Today (28th. of October 2013), two more pieces were fitted into the jigsaw.
Route 113 has been taken over from ‘Glovers of Ashbourne’.
The Plaxton Primo’s that Glovers mainly have employed have given way to ‘yourbus’ Wright ‘StreetLites’.
Here MX62 GXE about to load in Belper for the 12-25 departure.
The other route that ‘yourbus’ is operating is the 114 that runs from Derby to Ashbourne via Hulland Ward. It was operated by ‘Arriva’ as the 109.
Here we see MX62 GOA about to leave Ashbourne on the 2-00 p.m. departure.
The sun has almost obliterated the destination but it is still readable. In case there is any doubt, I show the repeater by the door.
I was a little surprised that ‘yourbus’ are operating just one service on what is normally ‘trentbarton’s ‘Swift’ Derby- Ashbourne service.
I presume since the bus arrives on the ‘swift’ and it departs on the 114 (both at 06-35) that it is a positioning movement.
Considering ‘yourbus’ rapid acquisition of routes over the past few months It is interesting to speculate where they are going to turn up next !!
