Dal y bws i De Cymru

The buses below are all on their way out from Plymouth and heading to South Wales. 44914/20 I believe are already there. They are needed in South Wales for new competitive services lauched by First Cymru. Of course these buses were transferred to Plymouth when First started new services against Plymouth Citybus. Other buses recieved at that time have also been transferred elsewhere as the new Ugobus network which promised so much has withered away...
First 44914 YX09AGZ (gone!) First 44915 YX09AHA First 44916 YX09AHC First 44917 YX09AHD 22 February 2011 First 44918 YX09AHE (now gone) First 44919 YX09AHF First 44920 YX09AHG First 42969 WA56FTZ First 44500 WK56ABZ Of course its not all one way traffic - over the coming weeks expect to see some of the exciting buses being brought into Plymouth. Hold on to your hats...( I realise I have possibly oversold this!). This means that the mantle of "newest buses in Plymouth service" reverts back to the Citybus Enviros from 2008 - with no sign of anything newer on the horizon either. "Dal y bws i De Cymru" = Catch the bus to South Wales (according to Google anyway!)
