              • Time and Frequency changes: Plymouth Citybus changed this service from the 31st August and despite conducting extensive time trials we have found the section of route between Derriford Hospital and Tavistock very difficult to keep to time. The changes to the timetable in the main add an additional 5 minutes in each journey allocated to the section of route between Tavistock and Derriford Hospital. This additional time has been put into the Service Monday to Saturday.
              • Service 42A/B Some journeys have needed to move by a few minutes as a consequence of the changes to the Service 42.

                • Plymouth Citybus’ announced today that it will launch a prestigious new service between Plymouth and Tavistock from October 5. Plymouth Citybus, a Go-Ahead Group company, has invested £1 million in a new fleet of four high specification Enviro 400 double deck buses, which boast EURO 5 low emissions. The new buses are thoughtfully designed with additional legroom and incorporate two tone leather seats and free Wi-Fi, enabling passengers to check e-mails, update their status or shop while enjoying the views across Dartmoor. The buses will also be the first Citybus vehicles to be dressed in their new premium brand, which will be unveiled on Saturday September 28, on the Civic Piazza in Plymouth City Centre. The new fast route will operate up to every 30 minutes from Monday to Saturday, between Tavistock and Plymouth, incorporating Yelverton. 
                • The new route will also operate on a Sunday, making it a seven day a week offering. Citybus has just seen its customer satisfaction rating from independent group Passenger Focus rise six percent since last summer, alongside being awarded Investor in People status earlier in the year. Plymouth Citybus’ Managing Director Richard Stevens said: “People in Tavistock have requested a Citybus provided service, which we are please to respond to. Knowing that comfort and reliability are the two most important factors on longer bus journeys, the introduction of high specification buses with good quality seats and internet access is a perfect solution”. Further details about the new service will be released towards the end of August, in preparation for the launch on October 5.
