The Public Notices in my local newspaper usually related to insolvency, planning applications etc. Today there’s a bit of a surprise Public Notice, Transport for South Hampshire Better Bus Area Fund has been awarded £4.5 million of Dept. for Transport funding.
Expressions of Interest are invited from bus operators currently operating in South Hampshire who wish to bid to deliver tho following bus enhancements within the period of 1st June 2012-31st march 2014:-
- On Bus Wi-Fi
- Next Stop Audio & Visual Announcements
- LED Lighting
- Internal Bus Refurbishment
The closing date for expressions of interest is 1700 hrs on Friday 1st June 2012. With only 6 working days in which to try and grab a slice of £4.5m I expect there will be lots of “Do not disturb” signs on bus company management doors.
