Jacketts Jolly jaunt to Cornwall

A while back I posted an interesting notification on VOSA by Jacketts Coaches. Well they have now gone and posted more details starting with their Facebook page on Friday:
We are pleased to announce that we will be introducing our new X5 service between Plymouth and Truro with effect from Monday 25th July 2011
This service will run Monday - Saturday leaving Plymouth at 9:30am and run to Truro via Saltash, Looe, Polperro, The Eden Project, & St Austell
Use the bus to visit the Eden Project and save, Present your bus ticket at the Eden Project ticketing booth to get £4.00 off per adult and any children can get in for free.

Well thats one good day out planned for the Summer then! This is a brave venture for such a new company so I hope it goes well. I just hope they can get enough marketing done to let passengers know its there.
