All Change at Plymouth- The Final Days of First Devon


The Western National Omnibus Company was formed from a number of mergers and acquisitions. Over a number of years until the formation of the National Bus Company in 1969, bus services were operated throughout Devon, Cornwall and other parts of the southwest. Following the privatisation of the NBC, Western National became part of the Badgerline group. In 2003 the First brand was introduced and the company was renamed First Devon & Cornwall. During 2015 it was decided that First would move on from Plymouth and Devon, thus ending a long tradition of bus operations in the area. The final day of operation would be Saturday 5th September 2015. The following day Stagecoach South West would take over with its own network of routes. The other main operator in Plymouth is Go-Ahead Plymouth Citybus, who made some service alterations that would ensure the travelling public in Plymouth could still go to where they wanted to go to. The cameras were on hand to record this historic occasion for you to enjoy
