First Get Excited

Someone at First clearly has a sense of humour:

News and Initiatives   Devon   Cornwall   FirstGroup plc.

So exactly what is this exciting new ticket?

From Monday 8 April 2013, a new 10 journey ticket will be available for customers travelling to Windsor House, from either The George or Milehouse Park and Ride sites. The new ticket will be priced at £14 and entitle the customer to 10 return trips.

Available from the driver.

Well it made me laugh anyway!

  1. First have today sold its London ops for £80mil. That should get the £100mil it wanted by April 2013 I think!
