The home of anything and everything to do with transport in and around Plymouth for TEN YEARS and counting!
The undoubted highlight for this month is going to be the all new Plymouth Bus and Classic Vehicle Rally now taken on by the PCTPG.
Meanwhile expect more of the recent Brighton imports for Citybus to be refurbished and swooped. First seem to be stepping up their repaint program, too.

Devon Transit 015

Welcome

A bumper selection this week as we have the full cancellations from First Devon along with the new registrations for Stagecoach to replace a few of them. As if that wasnt enough Stagecoach have put in loads of changes during September, some of which are the cuts being implemented by Devon County Council. Target Travel register their  new 52, Filers make a few changes too. I know this looks like a lot but its by no means all of them! There are still a few outstanding from the end of last week which I have not got through to yet which will appear in the next Devon Transit. Ive now got to start building up a lot of maps and timetables ready for all of these routes in September!

PCTPG Rally 2015

Despite the poor weather, which did at least clear up a bit in the afternoon, there was a good turn out for the PCTPG Rally yesterday. It has to be said that The George site is ideal for this kind of event, even if its not the easiest place to get to on a bus on a Sunday! I didnt take that many photos this time as I used my time catching up with a few friends and meeting some new ones, always the highlight of these events. Here are just a few of the photos taken yesterday…

Thanks and congratulations to the whole team involved putting on this event, at fairly short notice too. Already looking forward to next years!

25 July 2015

Reminder!

Just a little reminder that Sunday is the new Plymouth Bus Rally at The George Park & Ride site.

Sadly the weather does not seem to be too good although hopefully it will brighten up a bit mid day for awhile at least. I look forward to catching up with friends and hopefully meeting a few people who read this little site. Lets all have a good time, whatever the weather throws at us. At least its a lot more sheltered than being up on The Hoe which probably wont be a good place to be tomorrow!

Stagecoach in Plymouth

We are beginning to get a better idea of what Stagecoach in Plymouth will look like. We already know that they are not running many routes in Plymouth at all, so wont need anything like the number of buses that First operate. Sadly that also means they wont be needing so many drivers. It sounds like there will be some redundancies by the sound of it, from some of the comments that are being left. Lets just hope that the affected drivers are able to pick up new jobs, although its hard to see that many drivers being needed by the other operators locally.
Vehicle wise we are also getting an idea. Thanks to Kameron Allan for news that among buses being transferred from elsewhere within Stagecoach are ADL Enviro 200s 37113 YY14WFD, 37114  YY14WFE, 37115 YY14WFF, 37116 YY14WFG37117 YY14WFH, 37118 YY14WFJ, 37119 YY14WFK, and 37120 YY14WFL .
These will then be the newest single deckers in Plymouth.
Other buses destined for Plymouth are Optare Solos 47084-90 from Exeter
47089 WA04TXD STAGECOACH
©Eastleigh Bus Man back in August 2011, one of the buses destined for Plymouth.
Also expected are a batch of MCV bodies buses from Wigan.
As always plans can change!
The first new route I can bring you details of is the new 1 X1 service Plymouth to Tavistock
Timetable: 1 Plymouth City Centre - Tavistock . X1 Plymouth City Centre – Tavistock
1 Plymouth - Tavistock

X1 Plymouth Tavistock
