Using the bus in Cornwall

Hail and Ride

If there is not an established bus stop nearby you may hail a bus. If you want to catch a particular bus that is passing please give a clear signal to the driver. Make sure you signal in good time so they can stop for you where it is safe to do so.

Please remember to always take your belongings when you leave the bus.

If you have left something behind it is generally returned to the operating depot at the end of the driver's duty if they are unable to return sooner. Call the operator as soon as possible who will attempt to reunite you with your item(s). There may be an administration charge. If perishable items aren't claimed within the day they may be disposed due to rules governing lost property.

Low floor vehicles can accommodate unfolded pushchairs or wheelchairs. If the space is already in use, please fold the pushchair and store it accordingly.

Folding bikes may be carried on buses at the discretion of the driver, subject to the operator's individual Conditions of Carriage. You can contact the operator using the contact details on the operator page for more information.

Dogs on leads will be carried at the discretion of the driver subject to the operator's individual Conditions of Carriage. If there is already a dog on the bus the driver may not accept a second. Some operators may charge for dogs to travel, although assistance dogs will be carried free of charge. Dogs should not obstruct the gangways.

Other animals in cages are carried at the discretion of the driver.
