Time for something a little different! Today’s winner on #AYearOfBuses still technically exists, but it’s a shadow of its former self.
Stagecoach’s VT99 (now the plain old 99) linked Central Milton Keynes with Luton and Luton Airport. Run in collaboration with Stagecoach Group bedfellows Virgin Trains, a small fleet of coaches wore the attractive, swooped livery of the rail operator.
It gave us an insight into what might have been, had Virgin decided to enter the UK coach market! Earlier versions of the livery even featured a yellow ‘bib’ to mimic Virgin Trains’ Pendolinos.
