Yourbus Citylink

Yourbus have registered a new service from 18th February 2013.

As a first for them, it is a named service, “Citylink” and as per the registration, a limited stop service between Derby and Nottingham. As a direct competitor for “Red Arrow” this is another first – taking on a Trent Barton commercial route. Timetable here: http://www.derbysbus.info/times/timetables/CLKY_130218.pdf

There are no surprises in the timetable, The same route and basic frequency as the Red Arrow, operating between the TB sevice during the day, and 5 minutes ahead the offpeak every 20 minute service.

It is likely that the service may use the Citaro single deckers which were earmarked for the now abandoned Y35 service. This may be the main advantage that YB hold – being more suitable vehicles, and probably cheaper to operate than TB’s offering.

Be interested to see fares once the “special offers” from both parties die down.
