VOSA Again!

The VOSA notices continue with a fair batch of applications from Plymouth Citybus  appearing on the VOSA site on the 1st October: It is mostly timetable changes but there are a few interesting items below: The Route Page links take you to my Plymothian Services web pages for each route

Another route change. They have been tinkering with the route taken in Saltash for a while now so more of the same?

I dont think its any secret that timekeeping has been an issue on these service since the last change. Hopefully these new timetables will start to solve the problems.

PH0000135/13 - PLYMOUTH CITYBUS LTD, MILEHOUSE, MILEHOUSE ROAD, PLYMOUTH, PL3 4AA Variation Accepted: Operating between PLYMOUTH Royal Parade and DERRIFORD Hospital given service number 50 effective from 23-Nov-2014. To amend Route and Timetable. ROUTE PAGE 50

This looks like the start of the plan to join the two routes to form one new 'flash' route. I am guessing the route change to the 50 is in the City Centre with buses going straight onto Royal Parade to become a 43 rather than the Mayflower Street loop. I believe there will be a combined frequency of every 12 minutes which is an slight increase on the 50. I will be watching this one very closely!
