There are three main bus companies in Plymouth. First on my 'League Table' is Plymouth CityBus. Nearly all of their drivers carry out their business with the upmost professionalism and they have my every respect and trust. Then there's First Devon & Cornwall. Improvement needed as I have had cause to complain. Last is Target Travel. Despite being the smallest of the three, their poor driving standard has attracted the most attention.
The following is a compilation of clips highlighting the poor driving standards displayed by Target Travel bus drivers:
1. Very close pass on cyclist
2. Eating while driving
3. Not proceeding with care when approaching obscured crossing
4. ASL Abuse
5. Nearly running over Schoolgirl on crossing
6. Tailgating and harassment of cyclist
I used to email complaints to Target Travel but they never answered a single one and when I ring they don't want to know. But what can I do? I know! I'll email the link to this clip to Plymouth City Council and ask them to act.
