Operator axes bus journeys

Driver shortages have forced a bus company in Plymouth, Devon, to cancel dozens of journeys.

Plymouth Citybus said it faced challenges over staff availability and this had led to it having to axe 104 buses.

The firm added that it was concentrating on core services for workers, students, and healthcare patients and visitors.

Many of the cancelled journeys are on services to and from the city centre but other routes — including those to Derriford Hospital, Elburton, and Ernesettle — have also been affected.
