Welcome

My Plymothian Transit activities behind the scenes.

23 November 2017

001 002 003…

I have made a start right back at the beginning. Starting with route number 1 (the 16) and I processing all the routes which Plymouth Citybus have licenced since the start of the system back in April 2002. There are a few gaps and anomalies along the way but it should help complete the picture of the Citybus network. Its a slow process so will take a while…

Jurassic Coaster

I have been taking advantage in the lull of new service changes to try and bring some sort of order to the First Hampshire & Dorset Jurassic Coaster services which cross into Devon. I have now got all the VOSA registrations for the services that have at some point at least been registered as being in Devon. It is complicated in that these are long services split into lots of different sections which often change over time! Hopefully when this is completed it will all make a bit more sense:
