Matthew Had Indicated to me that he wanted to travel on an Aimée's bus, so I used the traveline site to work out a trip to get a ride on 2 of these buses. To start Matthew's mum drove us to the Crowcrofts Road stop so we could pick up the 350 into Hanley. Back in 2008 this bus was a D&G bus (the service is now operated by Bakerbus). The bus that rolled up was an East lancs bodied Dennis Dart #6. Matthew was impressed with the high-backed coach seats, so he decided to photograph the inside!

A fast journey to Stoke along Stanley Matthews way to Stoke where there was a short wait for service 106 to Leek. Mercedes Minibus EJZ 2291 (18) appeared for this service.
