Future

Another new service registration for Plymouth Citybus:

PH0000135/127 - PLYMOUTH CITYBUS LTD, MILEHOUSE, MILEHOUSE ROAD, PLYMOUTH, PL3 4AA

  • Registration Accepted
  • Starting Point: Plymouth University
  • Finish Point: Tamar Science Park
  • Via: Mutley Plain
  • Service Number: 51X
  • Service Type: Limited Stop
  • Effective Date: 02-SEP-2012
  • Other Details: Monday to Friday Plymouth schooldays only.

This is clearly to replace the current MX1 service. What is more interesting to me is the route number 51X?

Could we be looking at a new service 51 coming sometime soon? possibly linking in with the current 50 service? Lets wait and see!

Past

Update from PCTPG:

To all, investigation into poor running by 116 revealed extensive attention needed to the diff and transmission. A regrettable but sensible decision has been to sell it for spares/repair. As of 12 today (14 June) it was taken to target travel to keep one of their vehicles operational.
