Plymothian Transit was started way back on 31st March 2005 with little idea of what it was going to be,other than the promise that "something interesting might just appear at some stage". The number of regular readers suggests that it has!
The aim of the blog is to cover all forms of transport in and around the Plymouth area. Its as simple as that. In practice it has focused mostly on buses but also covers the railways, and the basic transport infrastructure. I have tried to cover both up to date happenings and the history of transport in the area. I have been helped a lot by the large archive of old photos available on the internet along with many that I have taken myself.
When it started Plymothian Transit was one of just a few transport blogs. Today there are a lot more and I try to link to all the good blog posts I come across, both to provide new information to visitors and to help new blogs get the readers they need to grow.
More than just a blog
Plymothian Transit.com is the main blog but there are various other web sites that support it. The main site is Plymothian Transit Extra which contains a lot of supporting information to the blog site. The main feature is the archive of Plymouth bus routes which tries to keep up with all of the changes to bus routes over the years.
Plymothian Transit A-Z is another web site which is building up into an encyclopaedia of road transport fleets in and visiting Plymouth
There is also my main Flickr account where you will see thousands of photos I have taken over the years. Many of them transport based. Plymothian Transit appears of Facebook and on Google Plus and also on Twitter from time to time.
