Long service coming to an end

 Half a century between them 

Its hard to believe that these two fine buses have served Plymouth for over twenty five years each, but all good things come to an end eventually. 175 is already out of service 'poorly' but effectively withdrawn and is not expected to re-enter service. Plymouth Citybus 175 B175VDV
176 though is still in use on a regular contract. It is living on borrowed time though, so keep an eye out for it! Plymouth Citybus 176 B176VDV

    7 - Every 30 mins, Mon - Sat Daytime
    11 - Every 20 mins Mon - Sat Daytime (30 mins Sun)
