Just a rival stirring the whotsit. It's a shame really and no crowing from me towards Target and their troubles it's just so amusing to see Nool and his dumb loyalty to anyone that gives him a few quid. Shit happens in business why oh why didn't Nool just say that he was sorry to see them in trouble and hope that it's all resolved soon like any normal person would have done? He getting more like Comical Alli from the Hussein regime by the day.

Was exactly the same when Nikk's world was going up in smoke and despite several articles in the government published London Gazette about winding up orders, he still spouted exactly the same "malicious lies from rivals and move on, nothing to see here" and "All will be back to normal in a few weeks, Mark my words"

I share the same sentiment as just about every other decent person that I don't wish to see any genuine business struggle or fail, we all know small businesses are the absolute backbone of the economy and just one medium size business going to the wall can have just as much economic fallout as a smaller national chain going to the wall.
This post was put up mainly because they are connected to the club by being the teams travel provider, but the trademark farm denial has seemed to have taken over it a bit.

I was the vile freak that actually rang the office when that story broke and was told it had all gone tits up and Nik was locked out of the office. I was also told what had happened. I wouldn't post what else I was told as I could see me being caught in the middle of a shit fight not of my making.

Lots of threats of legal action against ATD as well. All hollow threats. That's why I have no time for the nikkk any more.

Zackly Mouldy I was a mod at the time I think so was well aware of it. At the end of the day all I did was told the truth about Argyles main sponsor at e time, it was relevant as is the TT story.

PCC giving the contracts to Stagecoach is a shame, so much for pledging to do business with local firms.

Don't know if any local firms put in for the tender for these routes. If only Citybus and Stagecoach put in for it, then it will only be one of those awarded it. The council cannot award a tender to a company who potentially will not have an operating licence after the 31st of October.

Stagecoach are renowned for how shit they treat their drivers. A friend of mine was with them briefly at Dartmouth depot when all the First Bus drivers were tuped over to Stagecoach. He left to go to Tally Ho in Kingsbridge shortly after for more money and better working conditions, and within 6 months a further 4 drivers from Dartmouth depot followed him.
Stagecoach's best one is the Megabus drivers who are provided with a transit van at UWE Bristol to take rest breaks and compulsory driving breaks in and await coaches to take over.

So much for it just being a vicious rumour from a rival and that they would be back to normal by November. Just seen Stagecoach running two of their routes down St Budeaux.

Move on, Nothing to see here.

I know times are tough for Target 'breakdown' Travel but they must be really tough if they've resorted to charging ENCTS pass holders £1 to use the Argyle specials. Although the Argyle matchday buses are special services, they are definitely ran as registered bus services meaning that the goverment reimburses Target (or any operator) for any pass holder traveling so this is a little bit naughty.
Had they not have got their DFT licence back then they could have legally ran the Argyle specials as coaches, but NOT been able to claim reimbursements for pass holders but these are 100% registered public bus services.

They got a new licence

The new licence (PH2015480) for Target Travel has been granted so they keep their Devon County Council tendered services along with their other routes (Plymouth Argyle specials)

Mr Robert Risk would like to let everyone know that Dealtop (Plymouth) Limited t/a Target Travel has a New operator licence following the Public Inquiry at the OTC in Bristol. The Traffic Commissioner was happy with the new application and granted the New Licence.
Devon County Council Bus Services will remain with Target Travel.
As Robert said to the Plymouth Herald "The Company is still here and will be for the next 40 years. We’re working as normal and will be a leaner, meaner,Target Travel."

Mr Risk would like to take this opportunity to thank all his Loyal Staff and Supportive customers who remained with him through this procedure.

This was from Target Travel themselves on their Facebook page

Then we get this from VOSA

Public Inquiry (78047) held at Jubilee House (Bristol), BS5 0GB, Croydon Street, Bristol, on 20 November 2018 commenced at 14:00 (Previous Publication:(2670))

PH2015480 DEALTOP (PLYMOUTH) LIMITED
Director(s): ROBERT JOHN RISK, LEE ROBERT RISK

Address Witheld just in case

S14 - Consideration of new application under Section 14 (The Public Passenger Vehicles Act 1981)

Licence application granted for 17 vehicles
