Fat Bloke in Plymouth–the prequal

Many of you will already read the Public Transport Experience blog which is entertaining and very often controversial. It seems Fat Bus Bloke has visited Torpoint to check out the scene. The first three parts really just set the scene with the real meat coming this week…

The Trouble with Torpoint Part 1

On arrival (on time) at Plymouth station, it is a short, signposted walk out of the station, over a footbridge to the busy bus stop. Assuming, as ever, you know which side of the road you want. fbb did!

The Trouble with Torpoint Part 2

Which brings us to 2013 and the former municipality's significant encroachment into First's traditional out-of-town territory; a policy which had started in 2009 when red buses rode eastwards to Plympton in the form of City Bus 5. GoAhead started its "Blue Flash" route 12 to Tavistock, followed soon after by route 32 to Torpoint, both deep into First's territory.

The Trouble with Torpoint Part 3

Torpoint is, of course, in that land of Piskies and Pasties "where be Dragons" known as Cornwall (Kernow) rapidly claiming its Celtic origins with its own flag ...

Hopefully a proper posting tomorrow – sheer lack of time to complete anything tonight…
