Our buses will be late…

The Truro Park and Ride buses that currently run from 6.30am until 7.30pm Monday to Saturday, are set to run later into the evening

Cornwall Council’s cabinet portfolio holder for transport Geoff Brown, said: “We’ve listened to passenger feedback and we’ve been able to extend the hours of operation of the Truro Park and Ride to improve the service to better fit customer needs.”  

“It is an important, convenient and reliable service for people visiting and working in Truro.” 

“Over one million passenger journeys a year are currently made on the Truro Park and Ride, reducing the number of car journeys into the city by taking some 1500 vehicles off the roads of Truro each day and improving air quality.” 

The most that people will pay to be able to park all day and easily travel to the hospital or into the city to work, visit or shop is £2. 

It’s even cheaper if you buy one of the multi-day tickets which mean you can park at the Langarth or Tregurra sites and travel into Truro on one of the comfortable and frequent buses for as little as £1.40 a day, helping further reduce congestion and air pollution in Truro. 

First Kernow was recently awarded the contract to operate the Truro Park and Ride for a further 8 years.  

The last buses will leave each site at 9.30pm Mondays to Saturdays, providing a minimum 15 minute frequency across the week.
