Christmas Park & Ride

Nick Rice posted the following on the Yahoo south west bus group tonight:

"First services from the George Junction will operate on the following days of December -
Thurs 15th - 15:15 to 21:35 (6 buses per hour till 18:00 then 4 buses per hour)
Sat 17th - 09:35 to 18:05 (6 buses per hour)
Sunday 18th - 10:10 to 17:00 (4 buses per hour)
Thurs 22nd - As per the 15th
Sat 24th - As per the 17th
There will also be additional services from Milehouse P&R and Coypool both of course operated by Citybus.
Flat fares from £1.10 return (all 3 sites) but Thursday evening it will be 80p return."

6 buses per hour will see more than just the Routemasters in service so it will be interesting to see what actually happens.

Another bit of news tonight reported on this is Exeter web site is that planning permission has been granted for the new bus museum at Westpoint. This is of interest because it is planned to use part of the old Laira Bus Depot from Plymouth which was dismantled when Western National moved out. It remains to be seen if this does actually happen - but lets hope so.
