Technical problems with order processing     Date added: 20/01/2017
  Technical problems with order processing

We have been made aware of some technical problems during the processing of orders on our web site, affecting orders paid for by debit or credit cards. The nature of the problem was where the Woolybus web site would return a status of "Order failed", while funds had been taken by Paypal, who we currently use for processing card payments.

While this issue is being looked into, the previous method has been reinstated which still uses Paypal to process card payments, but actually diverts over to the Paypal web site for card details to be entered.

We would like to apologise to all of our valued customers who have suffered the confusion of an order showing as failed but was acutally processed without any problems. We would also like to point at that in no way at all has the security of any card details been jeopardised with this technical problem either.

It's hoped that this problem is resolved in the very near future, and will update on this as updates become available.

If you have any enquiries relating to this, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Woolybus fleet lists updated, and update on Stagecoach Fleet Book     Date added: 10/01/2017
  Woolybus fleet lists updated, and update on Stagecoach Fleet Book

We at Woolybus, are pleased to announce that an update of all of the fleet lists on the web site has been completed, and the updated fleet lists are now available for purchase.

The most notable change in this latest update is that the Arriva London fleet list has been tidied up properly after the restructure within the London, Southern Counties and The Shires operations.

Also, while typing this, we thought we'd also give an update on the amazing success with the recently released 2017 Stagecoach Fleet Book.

To say that we are amazed is an absolutely understatement. Since the books arrived from the printers nearly two weeks ago, we have sold 120 copies of the book, with orders constantly coming in every day. For this we would like to thank you all of the support in purchasing this excellent publication, which has received nothing but amazing feedback.

A number of our customers who have bought the book have been asking what other books we are looking to bring out. At present, we are working on the next title, which we are aiming (but can't promise) to bring out towards the end of February/beginning of March, and will announce further details once the book is close to completion.

To purchase the updated fleet lists, or the 2017 Stagecoach Fleet Book, simply visit our web site, or call us on 020-8593 2727 or 07572-788744.

  Fleet lists updated and update on Stagecoach Fleet Book

We at Woolybus are pleased to announce that an update of the fleet lists available for purchase has been completed, with the updated lists now available for purchase.

The most notable change reflected in this update is that the Metroline list now includes the Stansted Citylink operation. We are also still tidying up the Arriva lists following the various restructuring that has taken place within the Arriva operation during 2016.

With regards to the pending 2017 Stagecoach Fleet Book, this book finally got sent off to the printers during the past week after some last minute editing, and we await an update from the printers on when the book will be completed, delayed partly due to their heavy workload in the lead-up to Christmas. Once we know more, we will put out an update. We are also taking pre-orders of this by e-mail, through the Contact Us function on our web site, or by phone, with requests for payment not being made until we have signed off the proof with the printers.

To purchase the updated lists, either visit our web site, or call us on 020-8593 2727 or 07572-788744.
