Devon & Cornwall Transit 2022 Week 42

The weekly look back on what has been published on the Registered Local Bus Services site over the last week. As always click through for more details including timetables and maps.

  • Bit of a mixed bag this last week mainly from Plymouth Citybus with more Callywith College timetables and the new registrations for Devon County Council for the end of October.
  • Countrybus – cancel the 75 which transfers to Stagecoach
  • Dartline renumber their 55B to 355 although that service appears to be operated by Stagecoach!
  • Filers Travel – get in nice and early with a cancellation for the 301 in December.
  • First Kernow – seasonal timetable changes for Exmoor and Falmouth

Nothing local – but interesting anyway…


  1. 355 - Dartline run the 07:30 from Exeter and 17:45 from Tiverton (First and last journeys respectively). Stagecoach run the rest.

  2. Think Dartline doing a tendered peak 355 Stagecoach can't cover as part of its main 355 contract?

  3. No more double deckers on 5B which will be the 315
