Catching up on the new chapter for coach travel in Plymouth with the final closure of Bretonside and the opening of the new Mayflower Coach Station:
Plymouth's new coach station was officially opened today with National Express and Stagecoach present as the main users of the new transport hub. The Plymouth City Transport Preservation Group were asked to have a presence and mark the event with a departure from Bretonside Bus & Coach Station and arrival at Mayflower Coach Station using preserved AEC Harrington, 100 VRL. Providing a contrast in customer comfort. A photo shoot was held with local dignitaries, operators and involved parties. Ralph Delbridge, Group Chairman said, it's important to maintain relationships with local Operators and to be asked to support this event and the new era of transportation in Plymouth is testament of the relationship. Our thanks to member Roger Thomas for bringing his superb vehicle for all to enjoy
Thanks to Jason Beverley for the photos. More information, new and photos from Bretonside and Mayflower to follow tomorrow…
