Local news

There is nothing to report for the usual weekly Devon & Cornwall Transit edition this weekend so  there just a few bits of news to catch up from the local operators over the last week

Plymouth Citybus

Monday 25th-Friday 29th October is half term for our city’s schools, which means fewer people will be travelling by bus.

Our normal school day only services won’t be running over this week. We will also be reducing the frequency on some of our more frequent routes, as we know there will be a reduced demand.

Services that will be adjusted over the half term week from Monday to Friday are:

8 & 9

Running every 15 minutes instead of every 10


Running every 15 minutes instead of every 10


Running every 30 minutes instead of every 20

50 & 51

Running every 30 minutes instead of every 20

Services 50 and 51 will change slightly, starting and ending at Royal Parade instead of Derriford Hospital, so if you want to continue through the city centre, you will need to change buses.

All services will return to their standard timetable after half term, and the half term timetables will be available on the website soon.

More worrying…

For the safety of our passengers and drivers we will not be serving Park Avenue, Devonport after 7pm in the evening.

Buses have been on the receiving end of attacks over the last couple of evenings. Shattering a number of windows.

These incidents are now in the hands of the Police.

Buses will divert in both directions using Albert Road - Devonport Road - Fore Street.

Passengers for all services that would use the Granby Way Bus Stop, will need to use Fore Street.

Passengers for all services except the 34 that would use the UTC Bus Stop, will need to use Albert Road.

Service 34 will still serve the UTC and Torpoint Ferry in both directions.

This is likely to be for a number of nights. We will give an update on Monday 18th October.

We are sorry for any inconvenience this causes, but the safety is our number one priority here.


We are pleased to confirm there will be no industrial strike action in Exeter, Torbay and North Devon on Monday 18th October.
Following constructive discussions with RMT, the decision to implement industrial action has been suspended and services in Exeter, Torbay and North Devon will run as per our current timetables.
Due to a driver shortage there may still be some service cancellations on the day but please keep up to date by checking our latest service updates here:
We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this uncertainty and we assure you we have been working tirelessly in an effort to avoid such disruption
