Trent Barton withdraws from Pronto & fares revision

Trent Barton will no longer operate the Pronto from 16th February. Stagecoach will operate all journies from this date.

Trent Barton increased fares once again on 2nd February. The company continues investing in new buses and had new ticket machines last year, all of which cost money. On the other hand there appears to be an increasingly noticable amount of missing buses / lost mileage which not only causes short term inconvenience but also damages the reputation and confidence in the service. This also comes at a time when competition has all but ceased, which must mean that profits are up.

Thanks to all who contribute news, views and photos to the site.
