Operators based in North East Wales
RE: Operators based in North East Wales
P and O Lloyd, Bagillt.
In addition to the Solos on loan from Flintshire County Council which are mainly used for the Deeside Shuttle services also on loan from the local authority is MX18AVR a Peugeot Boxer 440 which currently has 15 seats (including the front passenger seat). It does have a wheel chair lift which is currently not in use and also currently does not have room for wheelchairs or buggies etc. It was new to Flintshire County Council in August 2018 and was stored until January 2019 when it went on loan to P and O Lloyd.

It is used only on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays on the LT1-3 services which has replaced the former 14A and 14C services on a much reduced basis.

The two Mercedes Tourismos that arrived in December have been re-registered. BF61HCN is now 5093PO and BN11UGB is now PO11OYD. They are in the process of being finally prepared for service which includes receiving the firms smart cream livery.

The Solos (YJ07EHZ, YJ09EZG, YJ56ATK, YK05CAA and YK05CAE) that were replaced by the new batch of Solo SR's in November last year have been stored by P and O until last month and have now been returned to Flintshire County Council and it it thought they will be going for auction soon.

I have a website which looks at the bus and coach operators in North East Wales. There are current fleetlists for all operators and most have a full historic fleet list.
Included are current depot fleet lists for Arriva Cymru. There are also a number of ceased opertators with historic fleet lists including the GHA Group
