Logic Bus Dennis Dart SLFs
Ex Metroline SLFs: DP43, DLD115, DLD125, DLD130, DLD131At the end of 2011 Galleon Travel (2009) - a Harlow company - bought five dual doorway 10.1m Pointer2s from Metroline, via Ensign Bus. Four of them were immediately repainted in a similar livery to that previously carried: red with blue skirt and white roof, but with prominent route branding for route L3 (Harlow - Stanstead Abbotts - Hoddesdon - Broxbourne - Wormley - Brookfield Centre - Rosedale Estate - Hammond Street). They were given Logic Bus fleetnames, and carried large adverts for their fare structure in the front nearside window. The fifth bus (DLD125), for some reason, missed the repaint, and was presumably used as a maintenance spare (PVR=4). It continued to carry its faded Metroline livery with the fleetnames crudely deleted.

An ex-Metrobus Dart, and two more DLDs: 745, DLD139, 149.In June 2012 No35, (DLD115) was involved in an accident which caused it to be withdrawn and scrapped. Needing a replacement, Logic Bus turned to Ensign Bus, who provided ex-Metrobus 745, a single doorway 10.0m "shoebox" Pointer in blue/blue livery. This was kept in the different livery, perhaps to remind drivers and (and passengers) that this is the one-doorway bus.
Two more ex-Metroline DLDs followed later in 2012, DLD139 and 149, both dual doorway in red/blue. The L3 route was tinkered with, with an extension to Cuffley and short-workings to Cheshunt.
The ex-Armchair buses: DP1001, 1003, 1007.In December 2012 Logic Bus competed with Roadrunner on route 1, and acquired three dual-doorway buses from Ensign Bus to run it. These were DP1001/3/7, that were ex-Metroline, having started with Armchair at Brentford. They were put into service in plain red livery, with white roofs. They were equipped with digital destination displays.

Stagecoach South SPDs: 33056/64/68/69/71/72: a new C3; a new (old) nameIn March 2013 Logic Bus extended their fleet with an 11.3m Super Pointer Dart, previously 33071 in the Stagecoach South fleet. This entered service in a red/white/blue swirl livery - presumably Stagecoach minus the orange.
Four more SPDs and four ex-Metrobus Dart MarshallsThe rebranded company won more business from September, taking over routes 392 and 541/2/3 from TGM Essex. for the former it acquired another four ex-Stagecoach SPDs, and for the latter group four Dart Marshalls that had previously seen service with Centrewest Orpington and Metrobus. The SPDs were numbered as SPD1-10 and the Marshalls as MDS13-16.
More mixed DartsAfter hiring some MPDs from Regal Busways, Trustybus bought a further two MPDs from Wessex Connect for the 541/2/3 (PDS17 and 18), another ex-Stagecoach MPD (ADS19, which did not stay long) plus four Dart/Plaxtons at the end of 2013: to from East Kent, one from Go-Ahead North East and one from TWH.
