The home of anything and everything to do with transport in and around Plymouth for SIXTEEN years
Life has pretty much on hold for everyone at for what seems likes ages but it now looks like things will soon slowly start to open up again.
First South West are planning to come back with a whole host of new leisure services across Cornwall and also back into parts of Devon with the new Dartmoor Explorer especially being very keenly awaited.
Hopefully things will start to get a bit more active here on PT too as I complete my 16th full year of Plymothian Transit!

Dwindling darts. 63

There are now very few Dennis Darts left in service with Plymouth Citybus – so get them while you can as they cant have long left at all.

One person who has been out catching them on camera is Mark Bailey who has supplied a few photos which I will share over the week.

next up we have 63 seen on both the 48 and the 35A in March

Dwindling Darts. 60

There are now very few Dennis Darts left in service with Plymouth Citybus – so get them while you can as they cant have long left at all.

One person who has been out catching them on camera is Mark Bailey who has supplied a few photos which I will share over the week.

We start of with 60 WJ62GNY seen on both the 13 and the 61 during March, still looking very tidy in her swoop livery which I think really suits the Darts
