U turn if you want to

CITYBUS bosses have backtracked on their decision to cut two evening routes from Derriford Hospital.
Plymouth Citybus 129 M129HOD
The 46A and 47A disappear altogether next week


Staff and visitors would have been left without a bus home after 7.20pm under the plans. Evening services on routes 46 and 47, which the firm says are making "very significant losses", were set to be scrapped from next Sunday, July 25. But Plymouth Citybus managers have now done a U-turn following complaints from passengers. A number 46, to the city centre, will leave the hospital at 8.21pm and the St Budeaux-bound service 47 will depart three minutes later. Mr Wickham said:

We are concerned about the very significant losses we are making on routes 46, 47 and other evening services. If we are to preserve jobs and resources we must ensure that a sustainable network of routes and timetable is able to meet the transport needs of more people in the region without running empty buses

Not in Plymouth but...fear for dog walkers Dundee City Council chiefs are concerned that dogs cocking their legs on the faulty bus stop signs could cause owners to get zapped!
