CHRISTOPHER CARTER samples the biggest fleet of still rare Wright StreetVibe midibuses as he enjoys five days exploring the Buses.gg routes on Guernsey, seeing how the network has grown in popularity in the 20 years since his previous visit to the Channel island
Guernsey has the largest fleet so far of the Wright StreetVibe, the slimmer and lighter cousin of the more widely operated StreetLite WF. Their arrival was one of the most obvious changes in the Channel island’s bus network when I returned after a gap of 20 years.
At 25sq miles, Guernsey is the second largest of the Channel Islands. It is a selfgoverning British Crown dependency that nestles in the Bay of St Malo just 30miles off the Normandy coast of France and 70miles from the southern shoreline of the English mainland.
