Catch 22 Fleet Update

The Classic Bus North West Catch 22 route, which operates a half-hourly weekday service between Mereside and Cleveleys, has been running for several weeks now. Saturday operations are currently limited to one bus an hour, although this is planned to become half-hourly from 10th November, presumably when more crew become available after the Sea Front 12 service ceases operations for the winter. The regular performers on the 22 route are four Dennis Darts which used to operate in London, an ex Blackpool Metrorider, with the latest addition being a former Stagecoach North West Volvo B10M. The six buses most frequently used on the Catch 22 are shown here, although only four buses are actually required to operate the weekday service frequency.
