Council Check: Cornwall Council

Each week, we investigate the public transport information provision of one of our local transport authorities. Today, it's the turn of Cornwall Council.

Where do the buses go?

Maps are provided of the whole county and specific towns. Couldn't be clearer. 5 out of 5.


A bus route list is provided, with links to the timetables on the relevant operator's website. In the case of First, the page it takes you through to isn't always the one for the route requested, but you can find it with a couple of further clicks. 3 out of 5.


It is not possible to find out the price of a single or return journey, but there is a list of day tickets that are available: both operator-specific and the multi-modal Ride Cornwall ticket, which is valid on all buses and trains in the county.
Plusbus is also mentioned, which is available in Penzance, Truro, Newquay, Liskeard, Bodmin, St Austell, Camborne & Redruth and Falmouth. 4 out of 5.


Good, comprehensive maps and easy-to-find timetables are complemented by full information on all of the day tickets that are available to passengers. Cornwall Council scores a respectable 12 out of 15.

  1. Cornwall Council does publish a comprehensive timetable book with, in one A5 volume, all bus train, air and ferry services.
