  1. Does anyone know anymore about if first group are coming back to Plymouth

    1. I don't think so. Only possible increase on Dartmoor Explorer although apparently Stagecoach have only signed year extension at The Ride. It will be interesting to see how things change with the Bus Back Better scheme from UK Gevernment. Operators have to guarantee certain things to keep getting funding from 2022

    2. An extension???? Stagecoach own The Ride

    3. I believe they sub let of First who still own the Ride but could be wrong

  2. So if first group is not coming back then and stagecoach if they do go be left to Plymouth citybus and bus fares will go up

  3. So we still don't actually know who owns The Ride?!

    1. If people are so desperate to know why don’t they pay the small fee to the Land Registry to check ownership.

    2. People are curious as contradictory information has been given in comments on this site, why pay when those in the know check this site?

    3. Stagecoach
