Service to operate on Tuesdays and Fridays only

I cant quite match up the National Express timetables as nothing appears to have changed but these could be backdated changes that happened earlier.

The 428 has new timetables on Traveline but is not mentioned on the Travel Cornwall site just yet.

Talking of which…

Plymouth Citybus and Travel Cornwall both have a few timetable adjustments from next weekend…

Transport for Cornwall

The majority of our services have been retimed and will have increased running times to improve connections and timings throughout the route.

Timetables will be uploaded shortly, so please keep an eye out for updates on this.

The main changes are as follows...

  • M6 - This has been withdrawn and will be replaced by 9H and 9M to provide a separate buses for Humphry Davy School and Mounts Bay School
  • 8 - We have retimed our services in order to service local supermarkets and improve reliability
  • 73/73A - we have put on an additional service at 0805 from Looe on school days.
  • 88 - The current 88 for local schools will now be renamed 88S

Plymouth Citybus

  • 5/5A - This route has been extensively retimed throughout the route to improve reliability.
  • 20A - We have changed the 15.25 journey to 15.30 in order to provide a better connection at Plymouth High School for Girls.
  • 42 A/B/C - We have retimed our evening services to provide better times for shift workers at Derriford Hospital.
  • 43 - Evening journeys will now operate a half hourly service on Saturdays to provide a service to and from St Budeaux and Victoria Road.
  • 61/62 - This service is returning to the pre-Covid route and will operate every 30 minutes.
  • 104 & 105 - These services will revert to a standard timetable and will now operate with two double decker buses rather than three coaches.

  1. There has been some more cuts to nx services from monday the 0545 101 and 1000 102 have been withdrawn
    The 1435 102 is now a 101. North devon is left with 2 502s a day to london. Also nx seem to be doing an amazon contract from estover-plymouth
