Details: Coming under both the 'girl and the SV' and 'man under bus' categories, this photo taken in Bournemouth on 18th September 2014 shows Yellow Buses Land Rover support vehicle K300DTS. Yellow Buses is the current name for what was once Bournemouth Corporation Transport, while the registration number of the Land Rover probably dates back to the time when coach operator Dorset Travel Services was also owned. The bus also has a personalised number plate and is not as old as this suggests. R17TYB is an Optare Tempo new in 2009. Along with London United, Yellow Buses was owned by French company Transdev but passed to French company RATP when Transdev was merged with French company Veolia Transport! Plus ca change. One final point about this vehicle. Two web addresses are shown on labels on the cab door. These are www.bybus.co.uk, and the rather strange www.globybus.co.uk (surely more suitable for a company serving Sellafield!). Apparently the multi-trip tickets for Yellow Buses are called Glo Cards. The domain www.gobybus.co.uk had already been snaffled by National Express.
