Timetable updates from 10th April

2 months ago Wed 9th Mar 2022

We’re planning some changes in April to improve routes and provide more reliable services.

We’ve worked closely with Cornwall Council and other transport providers to re-shape the network as we emerge from Covid, providing extra and more reliable services in the areas that need it most.

Some of the big changes include services going through Torpoint, which will continue to provide direct public transport links to Plymouth and Liskeard and introduce, for the first time, links to St Germans Railway Station and Saltash.

All journeys between Bodmin Parkway, Bodmin, Wadebridge and Padstow will operate as service 10.  The current service 10 between Wadebridge and Launceston via the picturesque coastal route through Polzeath, Port Isaac, Delabole and Camelford will be renumbered 96.

Service 21 has also been amended to operate via Hendra Holiday Park and Treloggan with extra journeys between Newquay and Quintrell Downs, taking in Hendra and Pentire, which means we’ll be able to run buses with more capacity past Hendra Holiday Park.  Service 25 will be amended to operate in and out of Newquay via Henver Road.

The full list of proposed changes are as follows:


Morning school journey retimed to improve reliability; last journey withdrawn to remove duplication with First Kernow’s Land’s End Coaster
