So Mondays to Newquay, Tuesdays to The Eden Project, Wednesdays to Boscastle and then Thursdays to Camel Creek (Crealeys) Adventure Park. They leave Plymouth at 9am and then return for  6pm’ish. Interestingly the Monday Newquay service does not have an end date while the others do. Whether this is significant or just an error by someone at Citybus or VOSA remains to be seen!

I must admit I quite fancy a trip to Boscastle

  1. Nice idea this may be but should Citybus not be concentrating on running the services they have already got before doing this. There isn't a day goes by where services aren't cancelled due to 'unexpected short notice staff absence.?

  2. With 09.00 departures, in effect this means National Bus Pass holders will not be able to use these services for free, at least from the Plymouth area? Crafty or not?

  3. Let’s see if they run with the shortage of drives there is right now

  4. Just a thought but there single regs so suggests that they would be eu routes so maybe there going to use a citycoach crew unless anyone knows of any tacho buses

  5. Cornwall council wont let the passes be used anyway as these are tourist services

  6. I hope they use a double decker, would be such a waste of amazing views if they only use a single deck
