In the first of a series of sustainable travel blogs from our Devon & Plymouth Chamber members, Ravi Kirthy, Project Manager at MyNeedToLive CIC, highlights the ease of using Plymouth Citybus to reach your destination.
It’s been several weeks since I started attending networking events with the Devon & Plymouth Chamber of Commerce.
I never miss any networking events with the Devon Chambers, and I would highly recommend them to anyone that has not yet signed up with them.
It is never too late to start contributing to a sustainable life and doing your bit for the planet.
While I was enthusiastic about using public transport, it also meant that I had to wake up a little earlier for my journey to The Riverford Field Kitchen for the Chamber’s Green Breakfast Networking event.
Let’s just say, I am not a happy early riser without my coffee!
Using any public transport involves some planning. You must give yourself sufficient time in case of delays and determine the amount of time needed to walk to the bus stop if it is not accessible close to where you live.
You will find the most accurate bus times on the Plymouth Citybus app. This also gives you an estimate of how long it will take to reach your destination, including any walking to and from bus stops.
If you can’t navigate the maps, feel free to ask anybody you see, and they will be more than happy to help. You can also ask the drivers or contact the Plymouth Citybus Customer Experience Team.
If you catch the train back from Newton Abbot, it should cost you a little over £7. You’ll even get 30 per cent off if you have a rail card (prices as of 14 June 2022 and subject to change).
Happy sustainable commuting!
