Just the ticket for Plymstock

There is a new deal for Plymstock passengers with First at the moment…

Your cheapest monthly ticket in Plymstock: the FirstMonth Plymstock ticket!
At just £32 you can enjoy unlimited travel on First services 2, 6 and 7 for 1 calendar month (that's up to 31 days!)
That's as little as £1.03 a day if you use it every day!
The FirstMonth Plymstock ticket is available from your service 2, 6 or 7 drivers.
Between them services 2, 6 and 7 offer a complete network of buses for the Plymstock, Elburton and Mount Batten areas of Plymouth with up to 11 buses an hour between Plymstock and Plymouth City Centre (that's almost 1 bus every 6 minutes!):
Service 2: Mount Batten - Plymstock - City Centre
Service 6: Staddiscombe - Plymstock - City Centre
Service 7: Elburton - Broadway - City Centre

This is quite a bit cheaper than the standard FirstMonth Plymouth City Adult ticket which is £39.30, although it is restricted to just the three services. First certainly like to have lots of variations of their First Tickets!

  • Again, not much of a service: running hourly Monday to Saturday between 1000 and 1700. It serves somewhat posher car-owning housing but does have the delight of using Tunnel Drive, built on the trackbed of the former railway line between Redditch and Evesham Public Transport Experience

  • a huge shed on an industrial estate and pay much fine gold for the little ones to risk life and limb by scrambling over terrifying stuff whilst screaming at a decibel level that often reaches ear-drum bursting volumes Public Transport Experience
  • Is it about time that we introduced a proper system of ‘lane rentals’ so that the utilities would be forced to either minimise delays or provide cash to pay for extra buses while they dig their holes? Omnibuses

  1. The Firstmonth Plymstock ticket has been available for about 3 years. It started just after Plymouth Citybus introduced their 5 and 5A service and was originally priced at £30. Since then it has only increased by £2 which seems very reasonable. It is advertised at the majority of the bus stops on the route, but apart from that First do seem a bit reluctant to promote it, which seems a shame as it is excellent value.
