Peak frequency on Mondays to Fridays will be 8 bph plus 2 additional journeys ex Putney Common in the AM peak.

Route 98 will continue to terminate and stand at Metroline’s Willesden Garage. Route N98 weekend frequency is reduced to 2 bph on each leg, with a combined 4 bph on the common section.

The tender results sound almost like a myth
How can Go-Ahead win routes 5,15 and 115
Atleast London United won the route 18

I'm so proud and happy that Metroline has taken the 98 Route away from Metroline. Amazing work Metroline... As for Metroline, they should have been better with the route to be honest, then they wouldn't have lost it.

Yeah I guessed. Although in all seriousness, these results are actually quite confusing. I've been looking at some Tender results from TFL and... I'm just confused.

Also, I'm slightly glad that Stagecoach are losing some of their contracts although I do love their use of the ALX still... This doesn't change that they are one of the worser companies overall. Most employees who were with Stagecoach garages when they were still Selkent share my feelings towards the changeover.

"Tranche" is simply just a category TfL put each route in as part of the tendering scheme :P

But yes, although it's a sad loss for Stagecoach, I'm very eager to see Go-Ahead's operations on the newly acquired routes. The 15 was the biggest shocker for me.

Yeah Stagecoach have actually lost quite a few in these results, I'm not such a fan of Go-Ahead either as they are extremely unorganised and are quite messy. The branding of their company is inconsistent along with the service they provide. I feel as though they have too many companies to manage.

I don't like the use of old names. While I like 'Selkent' and 'Blue Triangle', I think the groups should I either take them completely or leave them.

Some interesting results there in terms of the number 15. Wonder what will happen to the RMs...

The NRMs will move with the route over to Go-Ahead London seeming as they are owned by TfL. The RMs on Route 15H operate on a separate contract and there are no plans at present to withdraw them.

Ahh. It was the 15H RMs I was on about. Just, seeing that I believe the RMs are operated by Stagecoach, I thought it may have been part of the 15 contract. Seems I was wrong :P
