Small earthquake in South Yorkshire

The first statutory Quality Bus Partnership is now signed off for North Sheffield and the PTE is ecstatic. Well pleased to be first anyway, to my mind they are putting in a lot of infrastructure and the operators are bringing forward the bus purchases they already had lined up – who is getting the most out of the deal?  Good to see that they will be getting a “Real Time Intelligent Detection system” – I know what they mean but doesn’t sound quite right, just suitably “techy”.

Obviously the eyes of the world, well PTEG and CPT, will be on the this trial – whether there will be lessons for smaller towns and cities remains to be seen, but it perhaps spikes the re-regulation argument for a little longer.
