Hop aboard the Chatterbus

Have your say on Plymouth’s bus services and find out more about upcoming changes at a special event being held at the Big Screen on Wednesday 26 August.

Whether you think buses are brilliant or delays are driving you mad, head to Armada Way and hop aboard the Chatterbus anytime from 9.30am to 3.30pm.

You can chat to staff, make a suggestion or complaint or pass on a compliment, as well as find out about changes being made to bus services next month.

Or, if you just need some general information, there will be plenty of timetables, route maps and promotional leaflets to take away.

Stagecoach will be on hand to explain their plans for the city’s bus network following their takeover of First Devon and Cornwall in Plymouth, Tavistock and Dartmouth on 6 September. They will be joined by representatives from Plymouth Citybus, Target Travel, Jackett’s Coaches and Plymouth City Council.

You can also get an early look at new buses being introduced soon by Plymouth Citybus and Stagecoach.

Councillor Brian Vincent, Cabinet Member for Streetscene, said: “September will see some pretty significant changes in the city’s bus network, with the takeover of First’s operations by Stagecoach, a revised network from Citybus and our two new bus shelters on Royal Parade coming into use. If you travel by bus, come along to the Chatterbus on 26 August and find out more about how these changes will affect you.”

The ‘Your Bus Matters’ event is being organised by the Council in partnership with Bus Users UK and local bus operators.
