Update on local bus services

Bus Update, 

In last week’s update I reported how a new operator has been found for most of the former 60 Bus Route.

Torbay Buses have registered a Monday to Friday route between Paignton and Livermead/Occombe, on an hourly service between 09:30am and 3pm. While the service will no longer visit Torquay, connection with other bus services  such as the number 12 may be made via Paignton Bus Station.

Christmas Bus Trips are also being run by Our Bus from Livermead Shops to Torquay Town Centre via St Luke’s (Following the route of the 60 bus) on Monday 17th December and Saturday 22nd December. They will be leaving Livermead at 10.15 and 11.15 then returning from Castle Circus at 12.45, 13.45 and 14.45 £3 each way but please book in advance by calling 01803 212638.

Finally if you have been affected by the loss of the 65 service there is an open meeting (Arranged by the Torbay Community Development Trust) on Thursday 20th December at 12 noon, Main Hall, Market Street, Torquay, TQ1 3AF to discuss potential ways forward.
