This just in from Dan Lee, the Campaigns Officer at Manchester University Students Union.
"As for as I've been told, though it wasn't part of any detailed
conversation, the 147 contract with R. Bullock has only recently been
renewed. I would thus assume that Stagecoach will be taking on this new
contract in their acquisition.
This is obviously something of concern to myself as a student rep. When I know more, I'll pass it on. "
Thanks Dan! We're going to hopefully speak to Stagecoach about this tomorrow.
