Friday Fleet Focus

Plymouth Community Homes
Its been a while since the last 'Fleet Focus' so here we go with a new fleet that can be seen in Plymouth. Plymouth Community Homes. PCH was formed to take over the council housing from Plymouth City Council and inherited their fleet of vans. They have since started to replace their fleet with quite a selection of new vans and also have been busy putting the older vans into their new livery which is certainly a big improvement on the bland city council livery.

Plymouth Community Homes PJ59XMG There seem to be quite a few of these smart little VW Transports vans around.

Plymouth Community Homes KN59GOK For larger vans they have seem to favour Mercedes with this Sprinter noted recently.
None of the more recent fleet members carry local registrations so I assume that they are supplied under contract hire from some national concern but have yet to get close enough to inspect one properly. I do know that the fleet is serviced by Plymouth Citybus' Car and Commercial division who won the contract to look after the 156 vehicle fleet back in January 2010
