It would appear that the seven Enviro 200s transferred from Stagecoach West Scotland to Stagecoach East Midlands (36706-12) are in fact in exchange for Optare Solos, although the identities of the Solos is not yet known. The Enviro 200s are at Lincoln being prepared for service.
The remaining main fleet Dart SPDs in the Stagecoach East Midlands fleet - 33832/35/37 - have been transferred to the Reserve Fleet at Hull. Also transferred to the Hull Reserve Fleet are MAN/ALX300s 22110/88 and 22309. Replacements are MAN/ALX300s 22278 and 22365 transferred from Lincoln (and eliminating the MAN/ALX300 type from the Lincoln allocation) and Enviro 300s 27196/97 and 27203/04 from Stagecoach South Wales. Also transferred from Stagecoach South Wales are Enviro 300s 27189/93 which are allocated to Lincoln.
Stagecoach East Midlands is to abandon the Frequento branding it has used in Hull for many years and replace it with Simplibus branding, which also includes service revisions and route renumbering.
