Felix says goodbye.
Felix bus services have all but gone, after operating for almost 90 years. The Black Cat and Ilkeston Flyer routes have now been taken over by Midland General, a Wellglade subsidiary, along with many of the vehicles.
The coaching work has been taken over by Swiftsure Travel of Burton, who continue to use the Felix name. No vehicles were included in the purchase.
Felix continue operating a few school contracts until the end of Spring Term, when operations are expected to cease completely.
