Devon & Cornwall Transit 2021 Week 15

The usual weekly look back on what has been published on the Registered Local Bus Services site over the last week. Click on the licence numbers for full details on each route including timetables and maps where available (the 16th May times for First are not yet available).

The main bulk this last week are the seasonal upgrades being introduced on 16th May by First South West. Plymouth Citybus also change their 25 on the same weekend bringing back open top operation.

Other than that St Ives Bus co delayed the start of their service 10 which looks like it started last week. No timetables are published for this service. Finally an oddity from Dealtop Ltd (Dartline) cancelling a service from the 29th March that was actually taken over by Country Bus back in May 2020!

  1. That's one driver who won't get to finish early on Christmas Eve!

  2. Anyone know if a timetable is available for the new First Kernow D1 and D2 or know more about the intended route?
    Will they still provide a St Austell - Eden Project connection?

  3. The local new website "Devon Live" reports that routes 35A and 35C will be diverted in the Watcombe area after 18.00 due to incidents in the Halsteads Road area. Buses will divert via Barton Hill Road. Moor Lane and Teignmouth Road.
