Cornwall is on the up

the fact that fare paying passengers are also up by a decent amount is excellent news


Western Greyhound 205 WK08ETA

BUS use in Cornwall rose by 19 per cent in the first nine months of 2008-09, compared with the previous year. Much of the increase is attributable to increased concessionary travel, which was up by 29 per cent. But the number of fare-paying passengers rose too, by 13 per cent. [Bus and Coach]

The fact that numbers are up is to be expected with the new concessionary travel arrangements but the fact that fare paying passengers are also up by a decent amount is excellent news. Both Western Greyhound and First are reporting increases and both have invested in new vehicles for their networks.  Good news all round!
