The Panther awaits a new coat

It wasnt that long ago that Plymouth Citycoach looked doomed. This was before Citybus was put up for sale. Luckily for Citycoach staff, the new owners are Go Ahead, who seem to be more willing to operate coach fleets than most of the other large groups. The Go Ahead South Coast fleets have quite a few coaches between them under various names and some excellent liveries too.
Go Ahead clearly think there is a future for Citycoach as they have invested in two one new Volvo B9R with Plaxton Panther bodywork. Thanks to Denis, Number 317 is seen here at Windsor Coach Park this week:
Plymouth Citycoach 317 BX11GVP
It has been placed into service in plain white livery but is expected to receive a new CityCoach livery soon. Exactly what that livery will look like remains to be seen, but this is Go Ahead, so expect something stylish. If its anything like the Go South Coast coach liveries or Brighton & Hove then it will be worth waiting for!
