Contactless payments coming soon…

We are delighted to announce that contactless payments will be launched soon across all of our vehicles. No cash? Not a problem – you can just tap your card and get your ticket.

The project has been in the planning stages for a few months now, says Gary Newby, partner at Reliance Motor Services. Our ticketing partner Ticketer, have been great and have worked to make sure the project can be delivered for benefit of passengers and staff. We anticipate that testing will begin later this month with the roll out coming in October.

Changes to bus services – 29th April 2019

April 29th 2019 – changes to Reliance Services.

40 – Minor timing point changes. Additional service to Huby at 1944.

31X – We are commencing running the 31X as our friends over at Coastliner withdraw. There will be some timetable changes but we hope to build on the great work they have done.

30/30X – Additional 0900 departure from Easingwold to replace 0910 31X.

29 – Reduction in off peak services from Aldwark, Flawith, Tholthorpe and Helperby. We hate having to scale back services, but in this case the passenger figures just can not support a bus service through the middle of the day.

Full timetables will be issued in the coming days and we are happy to answer any questions you may have on them – info@reliancebuses.co.uk

 

Reliance Purchase ADL200 MMC

Reliance Motor Services are excited to announce the purchase of a new ADL Enviro 200MMC. The bus is expected to join the fleet in September 2018 after an extensive trail period with a number of ADL vehicles. Gary Newby, partner at Reliance, says “The ADL vehicle was the best fit for us at this time, the team went above and beyond with demonstration buses and sales support to make sure we were happy with the vehicle we are purchasing. We are delighted to be purchasing a bus that is made here in Yorkshire and we will be adding some branding to the bus to reflect this.”

Richard Matthews, ADL Retail Sales Director, comments: “We are pleased to have been able to support Reliance Motor Services recently by making available some of our demonstrator buses for evaluation and to cover a vehicle requirement that arose from this quality independent operator’s expansion of business. This order confirms our Enviro200’s class-leading attributes and we are particularly delighted to have been given this vote of confidence from a new customer whose fleet has until now consisted exclusively of a competing marque.”

X618 VWR Leaves the Fleet

We are sorry to say that X618 VWR has left the Reliance fleet.

We are however, happy to report that the vehicle has gone into preservation, and we hope that the new owners will bring it back for a visit in the future.

The vehicle had been with Reliance since new and covered roughly 1,240,000kms with us, working on nearly all of our routes past and present. Its last job with us was a piece of in fill filming for Emmerdale, footage should be on the screens later this month.
