First have registered NC1, NC2, NC3 & NC6. NC2 now starts at Illingworth.
Putting 2 and 2 together it looks like Geldards have got the other services NC4, NC5, NC7, NC8, NC9 or at least three of them.
This is because it is confirmed that Geldards will now be running the C38 & C42 at Brooksbank and the K67 at All Saints (all PM only) and at the moment all these services are run by HJC interworking with New College journeys.
You might find that there is a scheduled upload/update due, and these changes have been kept back until then.
And if that's how they deal with emergency timetable changes they could do with finding a quicker way of dealing with it.
However as some timetables have been incorrect since Metro updated their website several months ago I'm not surprised.
Yes, but if only part of the update was ready and uploaded before this happened, then they may have decided to hold these changes back until everything else was ready for upload, and then publish the whole site, rather than remove what was already there, publish these changes, and then upload everything back on.

A strange one is how the 505 has been retimed an hour earlier on Mondays. This should have been done last year as the B46 which it links to runs an hour earlier on Mondays, so presumably this glorified positioning journey actually missed its position once a week and therefore two buses were involved.
What is strange is that First aren't operating the B46 anymore so the 505 will no longer link to the school service and doesn't need retiming!

Noticed another strange timetable, the 373! You'd think it'd run to a set timetable every day of the week but oh no, it had to be weird! You've really got to have the timetable with you, know what day of the week it is as well as what period in the year it is (i.e spring/autumn), it's much worse than how services like the 85/A, 205, 505 etc run, I don't get these educational places with all their weird early finishes one day and later ones the next.
Indeed, it is presumably timed to coincide with lesson start/finish times which must be different on various days.
I never get school services that only run in the morning or the afternoon but not both either!
Becoming more common with colleges, often an early finish on a Friday (for the weekend) & a Wednesday (this is the day the organised sports teams play their matches & it gives time for the team to get to away games - which at Colleges & Universities may be a further distance than schools are due to the fewer educational establishments at this age - without missing lessons).
School journeys running only in one direction will tend to have one of two causes. It can be on Afternoon only runs this is because parents can drop their kids off at school on the way into work (an early school start before 0830 will often give parents time to get in to the office/shop where their work before they start at 9) but of course if they are working full time they can't then pick them up after so transport is needed. The other (more common) reason is that journeys have been doubled up in one direction but can't in the other, either nearby schools with similar start times but different finish times (or vice versa) will result in a need for an extra service in one direction or that a normal bus service can be used in one direction but the timing makes it inappropriate in the other (generally resulting in too long a wait either before or after school).
All that has changed is the operator - times and route are unchanged and it is times that most people will be looking for.
As Arrive-with-no-style had an even more random selection of buses than Transdev York, and were quite happily running buses in First and Stagecoach livery with no destination board, it isn't as though passengers are going to be massively thrown by an Arriva, Utopia or Connexionsbuses vehicle turning up! Especially as all of them except the 923 are reverting to their previous operator...
What the hell is that, a bad paint job reject from Centrebus
If you're referring to the blue and yellow Solo (some context would be helpful, y'know), it's a new acquisition at Connexionsbuses, still in its uniform from Anglian Bus, where they bought it from. No doubt it will be turning green and white soon!
