    First Kernow

    Exeter city services are not uplifting to 100% by any means (and that takes into account the significant service reductions that were already planned for May). Actually its more like 50% on many routes. The IJK are every 30 not every 15, Green every 20 not every 15, A 50% every 20 not every 10...

    Free Cornish Bus Travel June to August

    It would be humourous is no-one signed up but I can't see that happening as I'm assuming TfC will be'convinced' to...unless Government cover of services is better than council reimbursement. Interesting on whether it'll cover cross border services to Saltash and Bude and therefore Stagecoach...

    Stagecoach West/South West/South Wales - Fleet News & Discussion

    My local route is the IJKT from Whipton and whilst the I/J will be every 15 minutes, the K will run direct from Whipton Shops to Sainsburys, not via Whipton Barton (like it used to years back). Therefore we lose two buses an hour through Whipton Barton and to Countess Wear 2 buses an hour are...

    Free Cornish Bus Travel June to August

    The TfC wesbite still has nothing and so actual current passngers are still being encouraged to buy montly passes, when travel will be free from June 01. Surely, instead of encouraging passenger growth this will cause existing passengres to think twice. Yet another own goal by Cornwall CC and...

    Stagecoach West/South West/South Wales - Fleet News & Discussion

    Exeter has the new Stagecooach bus stop flags which are awful. Also they show the new route numbers which should have started tomorrow (H1 and H2 for example) that wont be running this week so all very confusing too.

    Your longest time spent on a bus or coach?

    My longest was Niagara to Toronto and then Toronto to Prince Rupert straight thru on the same Greyhound Canada bus. Then after 2 hours in Prince Rupert straight back to Edmonton on the same bus. Over 3 days.

    Go Cornwall Bus

    Sadly so very true. Everyone will blame First for the lack of provision, even though its TfC. Also of note is that the first website provides a link to the TfC emergency services, but TfC don't provide a link to First which is not good. Also, looking at the TfC timetable. How does the 16 serve...

    Go Cornwall Bus

    Bus drivers certainly are key for my wife who works in the NHS in Exeter. With all the last minute cancellations due to staff sickness, the bus tracking apps are more crucial than ever as they enable you to see which buses are running and adjust your route accordingly. I certainly thank every...

    Stagecoach West/South West/South Wales - Fleet News & Discussion

    Apologies meant Stagecoach South Wales not Stagecoach SW....pretty poor on my part as Stagecoach SW are my local operator who really do seem to be soldiering on better than most currently. Had good news story today too as kids leaving school for the last time were giving their Stagecoach SW...

    Wouldn't increased use of open tops help control the spread if people need ot travel?

    Go Cornwall Bus

    I doubt they have the desire either as why should First bail out the council who chose to give the tendered work to another operator. Someone needs to hold the council accountable for this huge waste of public money running stupid new services. They set themselves objectives that they have no...

    Go Cornwall Bus

    £9 daily ticket steep if you have to pay for Kernow too. Hardly the one fare, one company, one timetable promised by cornwall cc. Utterly ludicrous that passengers are increasingly likely to have to travel to and from work or college on different operators now in each direction.
