Cornwall Transit 045

Welcome to Cornwall Transit 45

It interesting to see the differences between the three main operators in Devon & Cornwall when it comes to service changes. First South West (KERNOW) tend to changes all their services in one go twice a year with a few others as needed throughout the year. Plymouth Citybus change their services quite frequently but tend to change small groups of services on the same date. Stagecoach dont seem to have a system and just change small groups of services as and when, with quite a few timetable changes scheduled most months.

This week sees the end of summer services from First South West, along with a few late changes for services in and around the Bodmin area due to road works. I am now looking forward to a quiet period in Cornwall at least as this post has taken me hours to put together!
