Whilst the construction works of the Prince Rock scheme take place the service will continue to operate via Exeter Street to Royal Parade however once the scheme is complete it is planned to use the journey time savings to either operate via Mayflower Street, to the Rail Station or through work to other areas of the City creating a new cross city local bus service.

The above changes represent a significant additional investment in additional resources into Plympton by Plymouth Citybus whilst at the same time there has been significant simplification of the network. All of the above services will be operated by low floor easy access vehicles if it’s not low floor you don’t pay and that includes concession travel users whose journeys we won’t claim for if we let you down.

The above services replace the following. Service 21/X/A/S, Service 51/A/D, Service 22/D, Service 20, Service 12/A
Further changes to local bus services commencing from the 6th June 2010

Starting from the George Junction P&R site the Service would then operate as per the Current 58 to the City Centre via Mayflower Street (no longer serving the Bus Station) This new service provides increase frequency for Compass Drive and also a much simpler timetable for the villages along this service route.

Service 26 whilst this service continues to grow from strength to strength evening services to Saltash has been very disappointing. Therefore evening services to Saltash are to be withdrawn with evening services terminating at Pemros Road. TIMETABLE PDF

Due to the works taking place in the Prince Rock area the following services need to be altered. Service 45/A will operate the Peak hour route all day and no longer service Radford and Elliott Road.

Service 50A is to be replaced with Service 50 and as such will no longer operate into Cattedown evenings and Sundays. (This is due to the closure of the bridge of Gydinia Way on Elliot Road) Once the works are completed then a review of the Service 45/A and the Service 50 will take place to see if a return to Cattedown Elliott Road is viable.

Service 152 is to see a change of route during the last period of cold weather the Service 152 found itself operating to Saltash Ploughboy as opposed to Longmeadow. This move proved to be highly successful. Therefore together with a need to put larger vehicle types on the Service the service route is to change with the service operating from Callington Road then left onto Liskeard Road terminating at Latchbrook Liskeard Road Roundabout TIMETABLE PDF.
