The home of anything and everything to do with transport in and around Plymouth for ALMOST TEN years and counting!The next big change in bus services in Plymouth is due in April, so we will be having a closer look at the services this month. We are also waiting to see what, if anything, First do next to combat Citybus incursion into Mount Batten

The trouble with these large national bus groups is that all their buses are the same…

We round things off with a blast from the past: 2003 in full Overground livery.
As I mentioned a while back, here are just a few of the blogs that I recommend. See the new blog roll on the right hand side for all blog updates. Here are just a few that have really caught my eye:
- Public Transport of The Plymouth Area: Ops and Sods Another 4 months has flown past in what has been an extremely exciting time to be working at Plymouth Citybus! I'm sure all of you will be well aware of the massive expansion in operating territory that has been undertaken
- Public Transport Experience A Jolly Day with 6, 6A! (2) One Starts, the Other .. There was a delay before departure because a "senior" pass came up on the ticket machine as "not valid" when it was, palpably, valid. This bit of bureaucracy from the Council (presumably) is one of the daftest.

After much discussion with the local authorities I can advise that, provided vehicle owners commit to attending following the cancellation of the Hoe show in the rally diary, a location has been identified and provisional approval granted for a Bus and Classic Vehicle Rally & Running Day to take place in Plymouth.
Much work is now taking place to ensure this 'New' enthusiast event is of a standard both the Enthusiasts and Public alike expect and to this end we are in consultation with a number of sponsors to ensure its success.
Social Media and assoc websites are now being targeted to raise awareness. My committee will keep you informed as to developments.
Chairman PCT PG
Plymouth City Transport Preservation Group are pleased to announce:
Plymouth Bus & Classic Vehicle Rally & Running Day
Sunday July 26th 1000-1630
More details will follow very soon.
