Notice From the Plymouth Citybus Web Site:
  • From Sunday 1st November we will be changing the timetable for service 5/5A Plymstock to City Centre Monday to Saturday. Sunday service remains unchanged.There will be no change to route or frequency of the buses.
  • We have decided to implement this at short notice as from our real time monitoring, we can see that the buses on the service are finding it hard to run to time, making them late. This has come from the increased amount of mileage we are running on the service since 31st August 2015 covering more of the area and giving a bus to more people.
  • To make the service reliable we have decided to invest in additional resources by increasing the number of vehicles on the service, giving each vehicle more time to complete the journey. Hence the change in the timetable.
  • We would like to thank all our passengers who have given us valuable feedback on the service, all of which we have listened to and now implementing the change.

  • Citybus invest in new Cross City Link
  • December 1st will see the launch of Plymouth Citybus’ second cross city link operating between Saltash and Plymstock. The new route, which will be named the 5 and 5A will run up to every 10 minutes between Plymstock Fire Station and Saltash Oaklands Drive, via the City Centre. Saltash will not only benefit from increased Monday to Saturday daytime frequency but also an up to every 30 minutes service Monday to Saturday evenings and Sundays. At Oaklands Drive the 5 will operate clockwise around Latchbrook, with the 5A running anti clockwise around the same route, so every bus stop will be served. In Plymstock both services will run a new route direct via Pomphlett Road to the fire station where the 5 will now operate via Dolphin Court and Stanbourgh continuing on its current route to Elburton and Staddiscombe. The the 5A will operate via Goosewell Road and continue to Holmwood and Staddiscombe on its current route.

Plymstock Network

  • Not knowing Plymstock that well its hard for me to judge if this is an improvement or not. I guess like any route and timetable change there will be winners and looser, but its generally the losers that will make the most noise!I have finally managed to get my computer to produce a Google Map of the network as it stands from this weekend. Larger 'live' maps are on my Extra site as detailed below.

Citybus Timetable Changes

  • Following changes to bus services on 25 July, Management at Plymouth Citybus have confirmed that an additional round of changes to routes and timetables will be introduced from Sunday 5th September 2010. Many routes will see improvements to Sunday daytime services funded by the withdrawal of some evening services that do not attract enough passengers. Managing Director Andrew Wickham explains that the changes are essential to improve and safeguard the long term sustainability of the services offered by Plymouth’s premier bus operator.

Plymouth Citybus 141 WA08LDU            

29 OCT 2009

  • This route has been introduced in response to First starting its new routes to compete with Citybus. Recent changes within the Plymouth bus market have resulted in reductions in the amount of bus services First Devon and Cornwall operate within Plymstock. This has created an opportunity to restore one of Plymstock’s most popular bus routes which First Devon and Cornwall had operated for many years prior to April 08. Therefore, from 25 October 2009 Plymouth Citybus will be restoring much of what were First Devon and Cornwall’s Services 5 and 6. The new service, which will be called Service 5 & 5A will operate a simple easy to understand daytime timetable which will be supported by a full evening and Sunday service. Service 5 and 5A together will provide 6 buses per hour into Plymstock during the day and every 30 minutes during Monday to Saturday evenings and Sunday daytimes. Plymouth Citybus has a citywide fare structure, ranging from 80p to a maximum of £2.00 for a single ticket and from £1.20 to a maximum of £2.90 for a return ticket. We will not charge our customers in Plymstock more for travelling to the City Centre from Plymstock than we would our customers travelling on Citybus services operating from Saltash, Plympton, Ernesettle or Southway.
