For all you bus spotters out there!

 

As of 21st March 2020 our fleet comprises seven buses including six 14/15 seater Volkswagen 'Bluebird' Transporters built in 2007, 2008 and 2011.  Pictured here are all our buses including the 'newest' Bluebird YX61 BGO aquired from Aberdeenshire Council in March 2020.

 

The original 'little blue bus', YH58 EHD purchased from GoRide CIC in January 2017, pausing at the Perch & Pike in South Stoke (route 134), where you can get 10% off food and drink if you come by bus!

 

Also bought from GoRide CIC in January 2017, SF06 BLZ seen here on a trial run to Watlington while researching possible timings for the 137 service.

 

Twin number 1!  SF06 BLX Purchased in March 2017 from a dealer near Coventry.  By complete coincidence, she came straight off the same production line with her 'sister' SF06 BLZ, seen here posing outside Dorchester Abbey for a route 138 publicity shot.

 

Twin number 2!  YH58 EHC Purchased in April 2017 from a dealer near Chertsey.  Spot the difference (yes I know, one is blue, one is white....)

 

This was our final and youngest Bluebird YX61 BGY, until March 21st 2020..........

 

.........when YX61 BGO arrived!  Thanks to a grant from the South Oxfordshire District Councillors, including £2,000 from Goring's District Councillor Maggie Filipova-Rivers, BGY's 'missing' twin appeared for sale on the internet at just the right time and right price, so we are now the proud owners of three sets of twins!  Both buses have previously seen service with Aberdeenshire Council.

 

Renault Master SF11 HGY currently off the road (door problems) and we're possibly looking to sell it as it is surplus to requirements.  If you might be interested, please let us know!

 

For fans of the LDV Convoy, we did have a mini-coach version PG06 FKF for use on special trips.  Here she is deputising for the normal Bluebird on a 142 trip at Tesco Kings Meadow Reading.  Unfortunately she sustained some roof damage when providing a shuttle service for the Beacon Festival at Watlington in 2018 and was never the same after that.  Sadly she had to be disposed of in summer 2019.
