Park and Ride
City of Lights and Late Night Shopping Evenings
Following the success of previous years, Truro's Park and Ride will once again operate an extended service for the City of Lights and late night shopping Wednesdays leading up to Christmas.
The service will be extended over the Christmas period, operating a 10 minute frequency for the City of Lights Festival on the 18th November and for late night shopping on the 25th November and 2nd, 9th, 16th and 23rd December.
Due to sheduled road closures, the Park and Ride service will not serve the bus stops at River Street (Museum) and Victoria Square after 1400 on these days. From 1400 the service will begin operating to and from Quay Street only. Staff will be on hand to provide advice, should you have any queries on the day.
The last departure from the City Centre for both the Langarth site at Threemilestone and the new Tregurra site will be from Quay Street at 2200.
Current timetable and ticket prices
As the buses now operate between Langarth and Tregurra the Museum stop can now no longer be used for return journeys to Langarth. From Truro City Centre to Langarth use the stops at Quay Street or Victoria Square. To Tregurra use the Museum or Quay Street stops.
There are a variety of ticket options available for the park and ride from day tickets to multi-journey tickets. Find out more about the tickets available and the current prices on the ticket options and prices page.

When is the next park and ride bus due at my stop?
Real Time Passenger Information (RTPI) is available along the route of the Park for Truro park and ride service.
The displays give passengers a countdown in minutes until the arrival of the next park and ride bus as well as showing the stop name and current time. When the bus is less than a minute away the display will show ‘Due’ rather than a time.
The Park for Truro buses are equipped with technology that sends messages about their whereabouts, via satellite, to a central computer. These are then sent to the receiving equipment in the shelters and turned into messages that are displayed on the screen.
