Plymouth Citybus Route History PH0000135/1

As most will know all standard bus routes have to be registered with VOSA (or whatever they are called this week). These registrations change over time all of which are recorded in Notices & Proceedings. As part of an ongoing project to look at all bus routes in Devon & Cornwall I am slowly going back through the documents to chart all of these changes – not an easy or quick project by any means! I am currently looking at all the Plymouth Citybus registrations in order starting with 1. The very latest route registered is number 173 which give you an idea of the work involved.

So here we have the first in the series for Plymouth Citybus Registrations starting with

  1. Anyone seen the new Citybus website ? It is awful, so un - user friendly esp for Timetables. Also it says Fare tables are avail for all routes.. I can not find them anywhere.

    1. Plymouth citybus are still working on their website like they said on there facebook page. Most or all routes have there own route map and timetable but the ticket part still has not been added
