‘South Notts’ (SN) buses were at one time a well known and important independent bus operator based in the village of Gotham with a range of routes that extended across South Nottinghamshire and into Leicestershire.
One of their main routes was and still is the No. 1 running from Nottingham via Gotham to Loughborough.
In 1991 ‘SN was purchased for £1 by Nottingham City Transport (NCT) who continue to operate the Gotham garage using buses wearing ‘NCT’ style livery but with a Navy Blue branding that maintains a link with the old ‘SN’ livery.
A batch of new Scania N230UD’s with Alexander Dennis Ltd. Enviro400 bodywork was delivered recently for use on route 1.
Registered YN15 EJA/C/D/E/F/J/K and numbered 641 to 647 in the fleet these buses carry the ‘South Notts’ fleetname in the traditional underlined style.
