Thought I'd share this with you. For my 'day job' I drive on the Canterbury Park & Ride buses which are operated by Kent Top Travel. The buses are based in Canterbury and the following pictures show a average night at our garage as the buses return and are washed. The buses are all fueled at offsite filling stations (single deckers at Morrisons, double deckers at Esso) before coming in. Each driver sweeps, cleans and mops his vehicle when on a late shift. Most of the P&R services are operated by Optare bodied Volvo B7 single deck vehicles or Optare bodied Volvo B9 double deck buses. We do have 3 VDL SD200 buses at Canterbury (sometimes 2 depending on allocation) of which are also used for P&R work with the third sometimes on the 666 Ashford to Faversham route. We also have a selection of Enviros which can be normally found on the 36 or 666 service but also act as spare P&R vehicles.
