A few Stagecoach Devon buses have now appeared with prominent lettering advertising their 7 day Megarider ticket:
It does make sense as at only £12 is is very good value. The Plymouth Citybus ticket for travel out as far as Tavistock will set you back £19 or £17 for Zone 1 & 2. Of course Citybus cover a much greater area of the city so although it cost more for a weeks travel you can get to a lot more places.
It does surprise me that Stagecoach have not shouted a lot louder about their lower prices. When you see Citybus 42s coming out of Derriford with a full load every ten minutes followed by half empty Stagecoach buses it does show that Citybus are not under any pressure to cut their fares. It will be interesting to see what happens when the green travel pass comes to an end in December, and we are forced to either pay a lot more for a Skipper ticket or decide which operator to stick with.
