Tally Ho! has announced that after consultations with Devon County Council, it will continue to run the SH160 and SH162, but with a reduced service. 

Tally Ho! gave notice in January that it did not have the number of qualified drivers required to be able to run the SH160 Kingsbridge town service and the SH162 Loddiswell, Thurlestone and Hope Cove routes and was withdrawing from the contract. 

Today Tally Ho! have announced that the routes were then put out to tender and "after  discussions with Devon County Council...Tally Ho! will continue to run the routes but on weekdays only, there will be no Saturday service in future.

"With regard to the SH160 Kingsbridge Town Service the 08.35 and 11.35 journeys will be withdrawn from 3 April."

Tally Ho! owner Don McIntosh said: "This is not an outcome we had expected however we believe it is a workable solution in the circumstances and one that we believe we can resource correctly in future. We plan to invest in a new small bus for these routes later in the year." 

We have contacted Devon County Council for a comment and we will update this story as soon as we can.
