The home of anything and everything to do with transport in and around Plymouth for TEN YEARS and counting!
August is a fairly quiet month. Make the most of it as September promises to be the most significant month for Plymouth bus services for many years. We should get to see the shape of the new services over the coming weeks.

Yellow Flash Revealed

Yesterday morning saw the public revealing of the new Yellow Flash buses as a bus users event in the City Centre. Stagecoach were also there to introduce themselves to the public but these were the stars of the show!

The end of a Wright old saga

Its funny. I have always hated these buses. With a few exceptions they hate hills, are noisy and most of them have really uncomfortable seats. I like the look of them, the Wright body is a bit of a classic design, but the whole product is poor and not a good example of what can be done. I have so many photos of these buses as they have been mainstay of the Plymouth fleet since they were new back in a time when First were still buying regular batches of new buses for us down here.

However, for the first time ever I was kind of hoping to get a few shots of these today. When you take a photo of one of your local buses you never know if it will be the last photo you get of that bus. Well today may well be the last time for these buses, and a few others I caught on camera today. I cant imagine may other First Group companies will want them.

First 48266 W606PAF

I thought I would be glad to see the back of these buses.

First 48210 V810EFB

 

Now its about to actually happen I have to admit I might actually miss them. Just a tiny little bit.

Devon Transit 017 24 AUG

Welcome to Devon Transit 017

Welcome to a massive post this week! We now have the final closure of the First Devon & Plymouth services along with all details of the new replacement service from Stagecoach. There may not be that many of them but there are plenty of timetables and maps to sort out. As if this wasnt enough we also have a few changes for Plymouth Citybus, Target Travel taking over the 52 in Plymouth and plenty of Stagecoach changes not connected with the Devon takeover.

2A: Royal Parade Mount Batten

This is all still a bit confusing! Traveline only have the Plymouth – Mount Batten route timetables but the Stagecoach web site still says the route is Saltash to Mount Batten. I have tried the Stagecoach web site. You select the location as Saltash and it does indeed offer you 2 2A. You then need to select the date and time you want to travel (why?? ) and then you select Search : “We are experiencing a technical problem, please try searching again later.” I have had this for a while now. I know of someone else who gave up as well. They were hoping to get some printed timetables next week.

Its all a bit confusing at the moment. VOSA have recorded changes from the 20th September only but it appears that permission has been granted to bring forward the start of the 42C into Woolwell to the 6th September as thats when the First 15 ends.

Traveline has maps from 6th September for the 42C:

but as I type this the timetable still link tot he old timetables. To add to the confusion the new timetable on Plymouth Citybus states as start date of 30th August, but of course you cant download those which is really annoying. I much prefer a printout to using the mobile
