New look to buses on Wightbus routes

HIGHWAYS bosses at the Isle of Wight Council say some Wightbus services will be run by Southern Vectis using blue Moss vehicles for the remainder of the summer.

The move is to allow Southern Vectis sufficient time to take over Wightbus vehicles and brand them in its own livery before community groups begin operating the routes when the current timetable ends on Friday, September 2.

Service 32 (Cowes to Gurnard), service 24 (Yaverland to Shanklin) and the 12.40pm service 23 (Shanklin to Newchurch) will be run by those vehicles rather than the familiar Wightbus vehicle. Routes and timings will be unaffected.
