The home of anything and everything to do with transport in and around Plymouth now starting its THIRTEENTH YEAR!
It has been fairly quiet recently but there is plenty of activity coming up with new timetables for most Plymouth Citybus services at the beginning of September. Looking further forward we can see a big change with Stagecoach taking on most tendered services in place of Target Travel.

The PCTPG Bus Rally CANCELLED

The weekend of the 25th and 26th August was going to be the next Plymouth Bus Rally which I know many of you look forward to. I know I do

However if you visit their web site right now

cancelled

and that is it. No details or explanation.

All I can say at the moment is it is definitely cancelled so if you had plans to travel down then please don't - the rally is not happening.

If / when I get any more information I will of course publish it here. I don't want to publish rumours or any personal attacks on any members.
