|Eastern Counties 116 at Riverside site (Bryan Dickson)|
This week we take a look at the now closed Riverside Park and Ride site, numbered 501. The introduction of the new network on September 7th saw the return of green buses and the re-introduction of route numbers in the 500 series, replaced by 600 in 2005.
Riverside Park and Ride lied across the site which is now occupied by the Norwich City Football Ground overflow car park and community football pitches. Unlike the other sites at the time, Riverside Park and Ride was funded by Norwich City Council. The service itself was operated by Eastern Counties using a small fleet of East Lancs Greenway rebodied Leyland Nationals.
