Finglands - the bus company so many have come to hate for their standard of driving is being bought by First Manchester and all those old white buses with beige, orange and brown stripes will be taken off the streets of Manchester. Finglands’ last filed accounts showed a loss of £266,000.
According to the MEN, As part of the £50,000 deal, First Manchester will take over Finglands’ existing routes and acquire the lease of its depot on Wilmslow Road in Rusholme.
Lets hope this reduces the ferocity of the bus wars along places like Oxford Road.
The deal has yet to be ratified by the Office Fair Trading.
