Stagecoach are Simply not getting enough funding from Torbay Council or TOR2 or whatever it is! They are currently on about spending rediculous money on a Live Information thing that is run for next to nothing by Torbay Bus Routes, if it wasent for this, Torbay Council could give more funding for the buses.
As the fares rise, less and less people will use the bus which will mean another cost increase and it just goes on and on.
