Although technically two routes, it will of course operate as one route all the way through. I am still not quite sure what licence the Burrator - Princetown section is covered by though. This new section of the 48 is the old 82 which has been operated for the last few years by Countrybus.

Plymouth - Plymstock - Wembury (plus journeys on to Burrator on Sundays) During the summer season (from 25 May until mid September in 2014) one service 48 trip a day will extend from Burrator to Exeter on Sundays and public holidays. This additional journey will see the frequency from Wembury to Burrator changed to run roughly 2 hourly, but will give better travel options for customers. This is at the request of Devon County Council and Plymouth City Council.

FULL TIMETABLE

This has slightly confused Devon County Council's otherwise excellent interactive bus map as the current map shows the current service to Burrator, if you click the timetable link you get the new timetable from 25th May rather than the current one. This comes direct from Traveline.

96: Bluewater - Woolwich The 96 is one of the more useful routes that crosses the border of Greater London. It connects Bluewater shopping centre and Dartford in Kent with Crayford, Bexleyheath and Woolwich. It is operated on behalf of Transport for London and runs so frequently that you don't really need a timetable.
BBC Archives. It’s a boring Bank Holiday, so what better than to watch a load of old BBC programmes about London’s buses, buildings and tube tunnels? I was trawling the iPlayer archives the other night and found one programme and then found that it’s part of a collection that has been put online.
Ellis Expounds its Excellence [1] Whilst it is true that a full-sized mock up of the bus station layout was tried out at Sixfields Stadium, this was without those annoying little problems called people and the minor irritant of traffic!
Nice seafront and harbour views in Torquay Harry Blundred did his best to rid the world of proper big buses but at least some Devon General 'open top' Bristol VR's survived into Stagecoach days
