Plymouth Citybus 436 and 437 Withdrawn

Another two buses taken out for service by Plymouth Citybus are 436 and 437

They both joined Citybus back in February 2013 so have managed almost 6 years.

  1. Has 17 been withdrawen as well or it it just waiting to be fixed?

    1. Its awaiting repair of something but hopefully will be in service soon

  2. I believe that the rather untidy single door conversions were caused by the wiring looms that were contained in the door frame panels and to remove them for a neater job would have involved re-locating all the wiring. Other operators have managed this, but perhaps their shorter life expectancy with Plymouth CityBus meant it wasn't worth spending the money. Still, 6 years was a decent term here.
