Reminder new timetables for some Ugo services

Ugoing anywhere tomorrow?

As Fisrt reminded passengers on their Facebook page yesterday: Don't forget there's new timetables from tomorrow in Plymouth (ugo 7,11,15 & 17) and Cornwall (88/88B & 25/27) today saw new timetables in operation for some of their Ugo bus services in Plymouth. Most passengers wont notice any difference today but they might on Monday when the services are cut back slightly. My own departures on the 15 are now slightly less useful to me in that they now arrive at exactly the same time as my Northern Connect Taxibus service rather than provide a handy stop gap ten minutes later for when I miss it. Not a big deal really. First 66882 MX55HHR Of course the cuts have not gone un-noticed by the competition:

BOSSES at Citybus have promised not to cut back the frequency of services on four routes where rivals First are planning fewer buses from tomorrow. Citybus competes with First on the four routes between the city centre and Crownhill, Southway, Estover, Peverell and Honicknowle. First says that two services will have reduced frequency "to better match resources to current demand", and because of increased traffic congestion. These are:
Service 11 to Honicknowle: Monday to Saturday buses will run every 20 minutes rather than 15.
Service 17, Southway via Mutley and Crownhill: Monday to Saturday service will be every 15 minutes rather than every 12.
Two other services will run with reduced frequency because of road works in Derriford. These are:
Service 7 to Derriford Hospital and Woolwell: Buses on Monday to Saturday will run every 30 minutes rather than 20.
Service 15, Mainstone and Estover via Mutley and Derriford: Buses will run every 20 minutes Monday to Saturday daytime (rather than every 15 minutes).
Buses on Sundays are unaffected on all these services.
This is Plymouth
This last line is actually wrong- Service 17 is affected on Sundays as it is cut back to every hour. I guess the other question that has to be asked is - will the 7 and 15 revert to previous timetables when the road works finish? (that could be quite some time though!)
