54 Registered Bendy Bus Takes to the Road
The first of the 54 registered ex London Bendy buses has entered service in Newcastle. BX57 UDB numbered 5355 is seen below. From this week the route should be operated entirely by the articulated vehicles which were displaced when London Mayor Boris Johnson fulfilled his pledge to remove them from the streets of London.
Ironically this comes at a time when the vehicles would have been useful in moving the large numbers of visitors expected at the forthcoming Olympics.
