From the ridiculous to the sublime

After yesterdays disappointing morning commute to work on an ailing 48270 today I had a real treat:
First 34004 K804ORL
That’s right, Volvo Olympian 34004 on the 15. We do get a few double deckers on the 15 from time to time, but this is the first one I have had on my morning run for a couple of months at least. These buses have always been special. Very comfortable seats and no problem getting up the hills!
Was it a coincidence that I should get this the day after I posted how poorly 48270 was?
Probably - but Thank you First!

I was asked (via Twitter) to pass on a link to a survey about Plymouth Citybus. Its a simple one to answer and will only take a minute or two. Once completed you do get a nice summary of the answers so far. Like any of these type of surveys the more completed the more useful it may be.
Citybus Survey
The survey comes from @DevelopPlymouth. I don't know much more about it or what it is expected to achieve but I am happy to pass the link on.
