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.

Brompton Road Distruption

Monday 28th November for 7 working weeks

Due to the kerb replacement work being undertaken on Brompton Road, we will not be able to operate via our normal route between the hours of 0900 and 1530.

The diversion route misses out Rawcliffe Drive, Rawcliffe Lane and Brompton Road. The vehicle will pick up the normal route from Burdyke Avenue.

Timing points will be maintained as closely as possible.

Changes to Service 19

Do you use the service 19? Then this post is for you. Reliance will be introducing a new timetable on the 19 starting on 04/09/2016. The new timetable will see an increase in buses during the week with the half hourly service rolled out until the early afternoon. Following City of York Councils decision to remove transport funding for faith schools in York, the vehicle will no longer serve St Wilfrids School on Monkgate. As a result of this, the bus departing York at 1533 will move to 1543 and the bus departing Skelton at 1510 will run the full route. Sadly the Sunday service will be withdrawn.
