To help meet the £50 million budget reduction required by Government spending cuts next year, we now face making savings of £1.7m from our annual public transport budget. It will be the first time that we have proposed making service reductions for four years. Most bus services in Devon are run commercially by bus companies at no cost to the Council. However, we spend £5.376m a year to support nearly 200 public bus services, carrying around 4.5m passengers every year. These services would not run without this support. We also manage the National Bus Pass Scheme for 175,000 pass holders in Devon. This costs us more than £9m every year. Efficiencies have already been achieved across the wider Transport Coordination Service to meet previous savings.

We would like to find out what you think about our proposals to reduce services. Please let us know what their impact might be on you. The proposals would start to come into effect during the second half of 2015.

Service 93 (Plymouth - Kingsbridge - Dartmouth): The timetable of this service is being amended to provide some additional short journeys running between Elburton (Elburton School) and the City Centre, to provide a bus every half hour This change is being made to compensate for the loss of Service 7 journeys. The longer journeys between Plymouth and Dartmouth are unaffected and remain as they are. From the end of October Service 93 buses will depart from Royal Parade (Stop A8), sharing the stop with Service 2 - which means that buses travelling the same direction will leave from the same place.

The route that this service in Dartmouth and Averton Gifford is being altered slightly. In Dartmouth buses will serve College Road, instead of Victoria Road. This change means that customers will need to catch buses from the Pontoon rather than in the centre of the town. Notably this change is being made in response to customer requests. In addition, in Aveton Gifford, all service 93 buses will operate in the same direction travelling clockwise through the village (travelling in via Icy Park and out via the roundabout). This change is being made to prevent buses from meeting in the narrow parts of the village - an issue which can cause delays and raise safety issues.

The Kingsbridge Vintage Bus Running Day was probably the event that I was looking forward to the most I arranged to take my son Zak and a good day was planned. We arrived at Bretonside in plenty of time, only second in the queue so Zak could get a front seat. The sun was shining. It was going to be a great day out.

Thanks to Nick for this photo taken this morning - the first day of the newly relaunched 93 Plymouth - Dartmouth service, which is now known as the Mayflower Link. A nice livery this time which looks good on this bus. If they stuck a non dated registration on these then most passengers would think they were new buses. Lets hope this new scheme succeeds and attracts a lot more passengers to this fantastic route. I must be due a day trip soon myself! First 32802 T802LLC

First in Devon and Cornwall is pleased to advise customers that the current service 93 will be completely re-launched in partnership with Devon County Council on 1st April 2007. The 93 will be replaced with super low floor double deckers and will have its own distinct branding. The main service between Plymouth, Kingsbridge and Dartmouth will now operate hourly Monday to Saturday daytime and continues with the current Sunday timetable. Devon County Council will also be improving roadside infrastructure. For further information about all First services in Devon and Cornwall please contact Customer Relations on 0845 600 1420.

As part of the changes service 92 will be withdrawn. Between Kingsbridge and Salcombe this will be replaced by extra journeys on service 606, operated by Tally Ho!, which will provide an hourly service with connections at Kingsbridge with the 93 for Plymouth and Dartmouth. The Loddiswell section of 92 will be covered by an extension of service 162 which will provide four journeys between Kingsbridge and Loddiswell.New timetables will be available in mid-March, or for details of the revised times phone Traveline on 0870 608 2 608

It has been confirmed that the buses for this service will be the T registered Dennis Tridents that were used on the Park and Ride before the new Enviros arrived. These are currently in Yorkshire being refurbished with new interiors and conversion to single doors. Cant wait to see what livery these appear in!

It has also been confirmed that the remaining Tridents which were due from Bath - but sent to York are now also due back in Plymouth and are expected to arrive this week. I expect these will settle down onto the X80. Talking of the X80 there is another service which is calling out for the special treatment given to the 93 - surely thats a service which should be given its own livery and dedicated fleet of low floor double deckers?
