Devon & Cornwall Transit Week End 24 March 2023

The weekly look back on what has been published on the Registered Local Bus Services site over the last week. As always click through for more details including timetables and maps. The First weekend of April gets even busier with a few more registration changes coming through over the last week. Hopefully this should be the last of the changes for next weekend!

  • Dartmoor Explorer Cancelled until the summer run in July
  • Revised route for Plymouth Citybus 20 after Stagecoach changed their routes through Sherford
  • Stagecoach introduce open top service 122 a bit earlier than expected
