Plymouth Citybus new timetable

Plymothian Transit Extra 21


  • Now that simply isn't acceptable, is it? People taking bus information. Why, they might even start using buses, and we wouldn't want that, would we? Public Transport Experience
  • Well you got the brief tour of the "The Wall" ARP Shelter & here we look at some of the graffiti & artefacts found within alongside a few surprises above ground. To kick off though, we want to focus on that one brick in "The Wall" Hidden Plymouth


  1. Chaddlewood are clearly the losers in this - their service has been decreased to every 20 minutes (though there is what I'd imagine to be unpopular the long way round via St Maurice).
    St Maurice benefit from a more direct route into the City Centre, and get a Sunday evening service.

    The 21B is a good idea; the 1708 departure from Steer Park is clearly coming from the 109 - they'll have to make sure they put a low floor vehicle on it as I don't think it's a duplicate and yesterday good ol' Volvo decker 187 was out on the afternoon 109 school run. With the withdrawal of the 29S I believe the B10M that did operate this has gone onto the 129 - personally I think this would be better used on the 102 as it is often very busy when I do see it. The 129 managed fine with SLFs over the past year or so - why does it suddenly need a B10M decker?

    1. Funny how Citybus don't seem so bothered with Chaddlewood now First are not there !! Time for First to bring back the number 12 I reckon every 10 mins. While they are at how about some more new First routes in areas Citybus not so bothered with... Eggbuckland/Crownhill to City and reinstate their service 11 to St Pancras.. they seem to be gig losers especially off Peak..once every 2 hours or so..evenings etc.

  2. sadly I dont think First are interested either. Unless someone buys them out I cant see them registering any extra services in Plymouth especially as they couldnt make them work last time they tried. As for evening services there are even less First buses out and about than Citybus.

    I'm not being anti-First here but there clearly isnt much money in running evenings. Citybus are trying to increse some of their services back into the evenings though in one or two areas


  3. It is a shame because i think the services that first run are in.the main very good it is just a shame there arent more of them. Even if first wanted to sell plymouth i am not sure anyone would be interested. I hope if first are not bothered anymore they secure a uyer as we need competition and first staff neef jln security
