I assume that the 29 new "regular" buses and 16 new articulated buses for next will be Volvo V8BLE and V8BLEA vehicles - can anyone confirm?

I also note that the news story detailed there were 1223 buses currently in service. From the BT Buses site, there are 1234 listed (although 2330 is listed twice).

There is a difference of ten buses which tends to suggest there have been some recent withdrawals - can anyone confirm?

I wouldn't think so as you would have to include the 15 buses at South West Transit as well.

I think that it is likely to be a number of withdrawals - for example, I haven't seen 680 (which I saw on a tow truck at Mater Hill a few weeks back), 682, 684, 694, 697 and 706 in service for a few weeks now.

There are two new artics in full BT livery (no fleet numbers though) at Volgren today.

One of the buses was registered under the new National Heavy Vehicle Regulator scheme with plates XQ56AI.
