And the scheme was hugely successful.
“We provide buses for the routes and will continue to do so whenever there are volunteers to drive them,” said Southern Vectis general manager, Matt Kitchin.

But this decision must rate as the most ludicrous ever taken by any part of the bus industry. We knew SYPTE was pretty useless, but no-one would have ever believed they were are daft as that! Beyond belief!
