Devon & Cornwall Transit 2021 Week 7

The usual weekly look back on what has been published on the Registered Local Bus Services site over the last week. As most weeks at the moment much of this has already happened due to very short notice changes due to COVID19. There are also quite a few changes outstanding that have not appeared in the daily download yet – and I am sure quite a few timetable changes that are being missed as they are not being published.

Two sets of notifications published this week:

  • Summercourt Travel (Travel Cornwall) have a couple of late suspensions from last week along with one new timetable for the 428 from the 22nd March
  • Plymouth Citybus have a batch of new timetables for Transport for Cornwall services at the end of March. Most of these already have new timetables and maps on Traveline which can be found by clicking on the relevant licence number below.

Its nice to see a few future service changes starting to come through for the end of March, although of course whether these happen or not will be down to the state of lockdown imposed at the time. Things are looking positive as the NHS led vaccination program continues to roll out.


  1. What happened to the Stagecoach post?

    1. its been slightly delayed! I am off work next week so will have time to sort it. Watch this space..

    2. First have their changes coming too, including 4 new routes (which haven't been announced) and the Dartmoor Explorer coming on April 3rd 2021.

    3. Yes - I am waiting to see what the new routes are - will be interesting!

  2. The official "Stay At Home" order is due to end from 29th March, although people will be encouraged to "stay local" for the time being. Further easing of restrictions is pencilled in for 12th April depending on the Covid situation, so Dartmoor Explorer may be deferred until then.
