Stagecoach X38

I know this picture is taken in Exeter but it is of a coach on its way to Plymouth.
This batch of Volvo coaches P801-6XTA have been regulars on this service since they were new and are both quiet and comfortable buses. This service has settled down to an hourly one with coaches used. It used to be every 30 mins with Mercedes Minibuses at one stage! For a while we had a 90 minute services using two articulated coaches which were great to look at but not ideal for this route. I think they came off back in 2003. Back then the fare was £6 day return whereas now with the Explorer ticket its only £5 which is a bargain.
