A Torbay bus service which was subsidised by Torbay council is now being operated on a commercial basis by First Bus Company.
The routes 64/65 operate six days a week between Torbay Hospital, The Willows, St Marychurch, Torquay Town Centre and Wellswood.
Torbay Council’s Cabinet Member for Transport, Cllr Chris Lewis, told the Devon Week: “This is excellent news, as it means that the council will be making a substantial saving of £89,000 a year. This money can now be reinvested into providing links for other communities that are not currently served by buses.”
