Just another day running a bus company

28 April: Srv 2 From Oreston to Town 08:20 will not be running - The next one is due at 08:41 - Sorry for the delays (VS)

27 April: Good morning, The Plymouth Half Marathon is taking place this morning. This is liable to cause delays to service 2 and 48. Service 2 will not connect to service 3 during the morning minimising the disruption to services operating in Plymstock only. Service 2/3 will reconnect from approx 12:30 offering cross city travel.
