A Volvo to Bristol


We are taking a Volvo B6 Plaxton Pointer (fleet No. 53) to the Bristol Vintage Bus Group’s Bristol Vintage Transport Collection's running day being held at Bristol Harbourside on Sunday 28th April.  This trip is open to members of the public and we have seats available should anyone wish to avail themselves of this event.  The timetable and full details will be made available closer to the date.  They will be published on our website at www.plymouthcitytransport.co.uk under “Forthcoming Events”.
Many thanks

  • It is noteworthy that this vast development has no provision for buses within the estate. Presumably this was a decision of the developer who felt the aspirations of his potential clients lay above and beyond the humble (and degrading?) red London bus? Public Transport Experience
  • Opening up 270 KTA's gearbox is a little like biting into a Kinder Surprise: Not only have you no idea what's inside, but you know it probably won't be what you were hoping to see. 270KTA
  • Of those operators subject to Passenger Focus’ latest satisfaction surveys, the overall ratings vary between 72 (Arriva Milton Keynes) and 95 per cent (Nottingham City Transport). Quite a gap. Omnibuses
  • Today was the first day of the 14 extension from Tesco to Peel Park Fylde Bus Blog
  • Out & about in Chelmsford - UK's first Volvo 7900H hybrid buses in service Andys Bus Blog
  • The sponsors of the new Greater Bristol Bus Map are to be commended for a potentially excellent production. In an multi-operator complex urban area a map is one of the must-have essentials for the innocent bus traveller. So it is such a pity about the mistakes. Public Transport Experience
  • Exclusive First Editions are due to release a brand new Norfolk Green bus model - Reeves Burgess bodied Mercedes Benz 709D minibus "55 BUS" working route 39 to King's Lynn. Andys Bus Blog
  • The decision to use a car rather than a bus is made before the individual leaves the house. Now give this statement a little time to sink in and you’ll see how important it is. Omnibuses
  • Several of the photos also come close to conveying just how alien a world it can be beneath ground in transport tunnels, both during construction and after. This is something that can be hard to appreciate and which is normally not particularly obvious in photographs and videos of tunnelling or active tunnels. London Reconnections
  • A timetable, a timetable, my kingdom for a timetable! Thus quoth King Richard III on a poorly documented visit to Manchester before spending his declining years as a car park attendant in Leicester. Public Transport Experience
  • The Clapham Junction – Kensington Olympia service (the “Kenny Belle” to its friends) was by no means officially secret but it was by any definition a “ghost train.” Between 1955 and 1969 it received no mention on the official timetable (our thanks to commentor Dave for identifying these dates) and at the time of Beeching it consisted of just two trains a day either way. London Reconnections
  • Now fbb is sure that the line has its delights, but the scenery is flat and uninteresting. The stations are now minimalist unstaffed halts and nowadays the line's rural nature is compromised by the expansion of Bedford and the new city of Milton Keynes. Public Transport Experience
