ARGYLE'S special football buses have been scrapped because they are under-used, supporters' club chairman Keith Bulley said today. The supporters' club negotiated a deal with Plymouth Citybus for buses to run to and from Home Park for every home Saturday match this season. Buses – at present – run from Wembury, Ivybridge, Glenholt, Tamerton Foliot, Whitleigh, Saltash, Plympton and Plymstock, calling at all bus stops en route and dropping fans at Home Park up to an hour before kick-off. Fares range from £2-£4. But Bulley said the last specials would run on December 8, when Argyle play York City at home. Bulley said Citybus was losing a substantial amount of money because supporters were not using the service.

  • Why not say "think of Hyperlink as an ordinary bus?" But First don't want you to do that, do they. They want you to think it's special, then they spend pages of FAQs telling you it's normal! Public Transport Experience
