Service 3 (City Centre - St Budeaux): The frequency of buses on this route is being reduced slightly. From the end of October buses will run every 10 minutes Monday - Saturday. In addition to this the route is being adjusted with all Service 3 buses set to terminate at St Budeaux from this date. 
Every other Service 3 bus will, however, continue on from St Budeaux as a Service 3A bus - providing links to West Park, Honicknowle, Peverell and the City Centre (see details below). The changes to Service 3 mean that people wishing to travel to and from Barne Barton by bus will need to make alternative arrangements.

Its all to easy to jump to conclusions based on the very basic details provided by VOSA especially as sometimes it takes a day or two for all the notifications to appear. However first Devon & Cornwall have just posted these changes and bearing in mind the heightened competition in the air these changes will be watched very closely to see if First are going to come out fighting or not. On this first batch the opinion is going to be split right down the middle!

This could be interesting as its up against the main 21 21A service. At first I wondered if the St Budeaux loop was being cut out and the bus was just turning at The Square but that could just be down to the terminus being after the loop. Possibly reading too much into that.

The main change is the reduction in the early morning service which until 08:00 is new every 15 mins down from the previous 10 min frequency. The day time service is still listed as “at frequent intervals”

After the previous offer on a one week ticket First have now reduced many fares on the 3 in competition with Citybus 26... We are delighted to announce we are further reducing our fares on ugobus service 3 to offer those travelling by bus from Barne Barton, St Budeaux and Devonport the cheapest journey to the City Centre. 
From Sunday 26 June our fares on the 3 will be... Barne Barton - City Centre Single £1.40 Return £1.90 St Budeaux - City Centre Single £1.40 Return £1.90 Camels Head - City Centre Single £1.40 Return £1.90 HMS Drake - City Centre Single £1.40 Return £1.90 St Levan Gate - City Centre Single £1.40 Return £1.90 Albert Gate - City Centre Single £1.10 Return £1.50 Devonport Avenue - City Centre Single £1.10 Return £1.50 Cumberland Gardens - City Centre Single £1.10 Return £1.50 Plus not only is ugobus service 3 the cheapest way to get to the City Centre from Barne Barton, St Budeaux and Devonport it's also the most frequent offering journeys up to every 7/8 minutes from Monday to Saturday! ugobus service 3: the cheapest and most frequent service!

Specific changes in Plymouth, from 12 June 
Service 3 (City Centre - Barne Barton via Devonport, St Budeaux): To meet the increased demand for buses the timetable of this service is being improved. Specifically buses will run up to every 7-8 minutes Monday - Saturday, and every 30 minutes on Sundays and Public Holidays from Sunday 12 June. This compares to every 10 minutes Monday - Saturday at the moment.

There seems to be a very clear strategy at First regarding competition with Citybus. With the exception of the 15, all the 'new' Ugo bus routes introduced against Citybus will have gone by this weekend. Instead we see First pulling back into their traditional operating areas and being more aggressive with its fare structure in order to win passengers back from Citybus.
