Dunn Motor Traction started a competing service with NCT's 36 to Chilwell via QMC and Beeston. It uses the same stops and operates every 20 mins at 15, 35 and 55 from Milton St.
The buses used are Wright bodied low floor Scanias with Irish registrations to disguise their age which is said to be about 15 years. The orange fronts are almost exactly the same shade as used by NCT. The single leaf door is unusual.
The single fare of £1.20 undercut's NCT's £1.50 and the special £1.00 fare for students and nurses reminds you that the 36 passes both a major hospital and a university.
