Devon County Council have notified us of revisions to the Service 3 (Dartmouth – Kingsbridge – Plymouth) to take effect from Sunday 29th October 2017. The revised Monday to Saturday timetable can be found at the link below.
To summarise the information we have received:
The 0645 Dartmouth – Kingsbridge, 1815 Dartmouth – Kingsbridge and 1930 Kingsbridge – Dartmouth will no longer run due to very low usage.
Also due to very low usage, County Council support will no longer retain the 1850 Plymouth – Kingsbridge and 2005 Kingsbridge – Plymouth.
There are some changes for pupils travelling to Kingsbridge Community College. From the Aveton Gifford direction those entitled to County Council-assisted travel will be transferred to a dedicated school coach.
This will leave sufficient capacity for non-entitled pupils using the Stagecoach bus service and paying their own fares to Kingsbridge. From the Dartmouth direction there will continue to be sufficient capacity on the bus service for both entitled and non-entitled pupils, although ticket prices will apparently be increased to cover the cost of providing this.
