It does seem that the intended Routemaster on the 550 to St Mawes will not happen this time, but the 537 (and possibly 538) on the Friday are additions not originally mentioned. On the 501, the VR will probably also operate the journeys shown as RM, so that photos of each can be obtained (and will be useful in case the RM cannot accend the very steep hills out of Newlyn and Sennen Cove when full !). Believe the VR on the 501 will become a more normal occurrance anyway.

If you want to go by bus then I guess the best bet is the 08:33 592 from Bretonside which connects up with the 597 which will get you to Newquay for 10:57! (Hopefully it wont be Varios all the way!) Full timetable for the 573 HERE (PDF)

Twitter 22 June:
CITYBUS: An article in today's Evening Herald incorrectly says that planned service changes start next Sunday - the correct date is Sunday 25th July
CITYBUS: As the road works in Prince Rock have not caused as much delay as expected we have decided to leave the service 50 operating through Keswick Crescent for a six month trial during which time we hope to see major improvements to the parking situation around the crescent Thank you for the feedback
