After much discussion agreement was reached on how Bath open top services would operate (top left).   Stagecoach introduced new vehicles on the trunk 700 Brighton to Southsea service (top right). First continued to make headlines in the West Country, introducing new vehicles in Bristol (above right), finally retiring its last Bristol VR in Cornwall (above middle) and withdrawing many services in North Devon (above left).   New single deckers also appeared in Cornwall (right).   The three main groups continued with First taking large numbers of new Wright bodied vehicles (below left), Stagecoach putting Darts in service (below right) and Arriva introducing accessible coaches on their Green Line route to Stansted Airport (below middle).   Changes made to airport services saw Stagecoach introduce new coaches at Heathrow (bottom right) and HTM (the Den Haag city operator) starting to operate parking services at Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam (below left)
