BUS services in this city do not appear to me to be run entirely in the best interests of passengers.
I am a 91-year-old war veteran and I keep active by walking down from The Hoe each morning to Royal Parade. I then have a choice of various buses to take me to different destinations. Unfortunately the return journey back to where I boarded is abruptly terminated at a stop some distance away.
If I travel to Plymstock, I return on a bus marked 'City Centre' which is where I boarded. On arriving at the top end of Royal Parade, I was informed: "End of the line. You have to get off, I am now "out of service".
I noticed, having unnecessarily walked the length of Royal Parade, the bus was parked by the Theatre Royal while the driver enjoyed a break. So why was I ordered off at the other 'end'? The next time I travelled, I asked the driver if I could alight at the Theatre Royal stop. He told me no. He was not stopping there but proceeding to stop where I boarded outside Spar.

why does this service to passengers not extend to dropping them off where they boarded? I recently boarded a bus at Mutley Plain at the North Road end, and when I reached Mayflower Street all passengers alighted. The driver told me to leave as he was no longer in service. I had to hump a heavy load of shopping across town to get the Number 25 bus It's crazy, and inconvenient.
