Catch 22 Update

Catch 22 has added further Dennis Darts to its fleet recently with W365VHB purchaseed at the end of October and W363/9VHB in November. Metrobus 326 has been offered for sale and its likely this and sister 69 have operated their last duties.

Red Rocket Express restarts on 21 November - with a Monday to Saturday service every hour from Preston to Manchester (0845, 1000-1600 from Preston and 1015-1415, 1530-1730 from Manchester). The first three buses from Preston start at Blackpool and the last three extend there. Four round trips run on Sundays (2 from Blackpool). 3 buses are needed alongside six on the 22 and 3 on the 6. Dart 371 has been painted red for the X70. Service 12 is expected to restart over the Christmas break.
