In london we dont stick to timetables cause busy routes like the 3 always end up getting late. Instead london buses operate by maintaining vehicle gaps within the service. the only routes you will find sticking to a timetable would be the nonfrequent and elderly people routes

Also night buses run on times rather than headway which the maintaining of gaps, London buses used to run on timetables until iBus arrived as TfL were loosing way too much mileage. Night buses aren't perfect due to running on a timetable but it means you can drive faster, there's still timing points but after Brixton on the N3 it really is a rocket down to Anerley and after Anerley they get faster until Bromley North lol. There's a rule within bus companies that they only put the reliable drivers on the night rota and it's very hard to get on to! Sorry I used to work for Metroline so I know first hand how time is critical at night.

hi @Rhys will buses come equipped with wheelchair ramps? and are they functional?
Only the C200, NRM and EvoCiti will have a functioning wheelchair ramp. The C400 is probably unlikely, at this point, now things are starting to be wrapped up.
Can I ask if there will be bus stands for short journeys on certain routes due to delays etc?
Yes. All information regarding curtailments will be listed in the manual. Some routes (mainly the longer ones) do also have scheduled curtailments during the day as well, such as the 3 having a few journeys terminating at Whitehall or South Croxted Road.

Good to hear from the man himself. Another thing however (before you ghost again), will the C200/C400s have both a ZF and Voith soundset or will each one have one or the other

OOO I have a question @Rhys Will you be able to buy the London Addon on Fellowsfilm?
I believe that as it's being published through Aerosoft, they then become the sole distributer, so you'll only be able to buy it officially from Steam or Aerosoft themselves, though I suggest buying through the Aerosoft site, as then Rhys and the team get more from each sale, as usually Steam would take a cut.

@Rhys Will the E200 have Allison sounds (I'm sure if not people will make some anyway)
The C200s sounds were originally recorded from a Voith 2009 Arriva Gillingham E200. The C200 comes with a Voith and fictional ZF variant. The C400 also comes with a standard ZF gearbox. At present, there are no plans for a Voith C400, especially considering most of the E400s that operate within the Add-on’s area are ZF, irl.

It doesn’t matter where it’s purchased from, everyone still gets paid the same way :D

Aren't you selling boxed versions for a bit extra?

ZF E/C200's are real variants, we have them in East London (similar to the one in the video)
