We are making changes to some of our services, which will come into effect on 1st April 2018.

With road conditions and congestion changing within the city we are being proactive to ensure our buses are more reliable. Amended timetables are now available online.


SERVICE 5/5A: An additional Monday to Friday departure from Plymstock Broadway to Royal Parade at 0435. An additional Sunday evening journey will be added departing from Saltash Church Road at 1735 arriving into Royal Parade at 1825 then continuing on to Plymstock.

SERVICE 8/9: Monday to Saturday we will add additional running time to the 1905 service 8 to improve reliability on this journey.

SERVICE 20/A: We have adjusted most departures in both directions by 5 minutes to improve connections to other Citybus services. A new timetable is available from the Timetables section of this website.

SERVICE 21/A: Due to congestion in the Devonport area in the afternoon peak we will make amendments to improve reliability.

SERVICE 27/28: The two services will now be split into separate timetables to make sure that the information we are supplying to passengers is as clear as possible. The 27 timetable will remain unchanged. The 28 will be adjusted in the morning and afternoon peak Monday to Saturdays to improve reliability.

SERVICE 34: The 2255 Derriford to Milehouse journey will be withdrawn due to very low passenger numbers. An additional early morning journey will be introduced on a Sunday from Milehouse at 0640. This bus will then serve the normal route via Stoke/Devonport arriving at Royal Parade at 0705.

SERVICE 42: This service will be diverted via William Prance Road in both directions to be able to serve the Palmerston Heights providing a better link for commuters who wish to get to the development.

SERVICE 42A/B: The evening timetable has been amended to improve the reliability of the services we operate.

SERVICE 42C: The timetable will see minor adjustments due to the amendments made to service 42.

SERVICE 50/A/51/A: Minor adjustments will be made across the timetable Monday to Friday to improve reliability.

SERVICE 118: The afternoon school journey from Notre Dame will now terminate at St Budeaux. Passengers who wish to continue to Camels Head and Milehouse will need to transfer onto the service 43 at St Budeaux.


SERVICE 12/A/B: Amendments will be made to early morning journeys between Plymouth and Callington to improve connections for commuters, which will also include the new 0450 from Royal Parade. The afternoon 1425 departure from Launceston will now depart at 1435. The 12B will also see the 0740 departure from Launceston to Bude depart at 0735.
