Stagecoach in Norfolk industrial action confirmed and other updates

Strike action will go ahead at Stagecoach in Norfolk next Tuesday
Strike action from drivers who are members of the RMT Union at Stagecoach in Norfolk, as reported in an earlier post, is now confirmed to be going ahead.

The date of action is next Tuesday, 24th November. Stagecoach in Norfolk have assured passengers that a full service will be in operation. Due to the industrial action, special fares will be in operation of just £1.00 per journey on Wisbech and King's Lynn Town Services and £2.00 for all other journeys. School and concession passes are accepted as normal.

Meanwhile, on loan to the operator is Optare Solo KX14FJN - the registration leads me to the assumption this is from Dawson Rentals. Alexander Dennis Envir300 27647 GX10KYZ now wears Stagecoach livery following a repaint from the Stagecoach-style adaptation of the 'new' Norfolk Green livery introduced in 2012.

  1. Upon research of the registration, it appears that KX14 FJN is owned by Dawson Rentals and was loaned to Malta Public Transport when new

  2. Does that mean someone could travel from say Norwich to Kings Lynn via Fakenham for £2 single?

    1. Unsure, sorry - though I would suspect yes as its sold as a through ticket. However, they may class it as two journeys in this case!

  3. Really sad to see the once proud Norfolk Green slowly self destructing - I suspect the management of Lynx anticipated this.

    Amalgamating King's Lynn into Stagecoach East seems a very short sighted move (drivers would inevitably want pay parity with Cambridgeshire colleagues), as does the closure of all the outstations where regular drivers knew all their customers. A great shame.
