Sorry for the delay. Hopefully now I have sorted my technical issues I can get in a few more post's this week…


  1. The 88/88A is a couple of morning timing changes departing Newton Abbot on Mondays to Fridays. 88A at 07.15 is advanced to 07.10 and 88 at 07.50 is advanced to 07.40.

  2. Just looking on bustimes - coach 324 BF63 ZPY has been doing trips on the 60 today? Is this true??

    1. Of course not

    2. No, but as a user of the 60, the capacity wouldn’t go amiss 😂 doesn’t make sense how the 61 is operated by full length EcoCity’s and the 60 gets 10.8m E200’s which are usually the 56/07/57 plates. Sometimes we get treated to an 08 plate. 🎉

    3. Bus times is not a reliable source for information unless its for a registration plate or fleet number. Whilst i dont get involved with the site there is serveral users keep changing stuff such as paint before it is seen out on the road. Another flaw is people are constantly removing vehicles vehicles from list purely because they arent tracking. As an example 4 Citaros are listed on the list which should be removed from fleet or have something added to show which are trainer buses and which are withdrawn. Some E400s which were in reserve fleet have also kept been removed from the list and kept reappearing as they came back into service. E400 489 being one! So if you see a coach tracking on a 60 its probably just a ticket machine thats been swapped.
