Record number of bus passengers during TT

The Island's bus service is celebrating record passenger number from this year's TT Festival.

Bus Vannin carried almost 200,000 passengers from May 26th to June 11th - over 19,000 more than during the same period last year.

The busiest day of the fortnight was the Tuesday of TT week, when 18,000 people used the bus network.

However, the number of passengers using the Snaefell Mountain Railway was down by almost 10,000.

Takings from bus journeys were in excess of £230,000 during TT.
