Bus fares reduced and timetables changing from 10 April

April 07th 2022

The long-awaited bus fares pilot, talked about by Cornwall Council for the past two years or more, is finally going to start on Sunday 10 April. The recently introduced zonal tickets covering the main towns in Cornwall will see their daily price reduce from £3 to £2.50. Tregony is not within any of the town zones. However, the Cornwall wide ticket price will reduce from £9 to £5. This means that an adult can travel on any bus with any operator all day across Cornwall for just £5.

Full details are on the Transport for Cornwall website.

Also from 10 April, some timetables are changing.  On the Tregony and Roseland 50 and 51 routes, service frequency is being reduced. It is somewhat ironic that services are being reduced at the same time as fares are being reduced to try to boost passenger numbers, but, unfortunately, the service levels run during the Covid pandemic with government subsidies were obviously not sustainable. It is really important now that more people do use the buses, hopefully incentivised to do so with the reduced fares whilst the cost of filling up cars with petrol or diesel has gone through the roof.

If any user finds any mistakes on the timetable, please email Bob Egerton. He has put together the Tregony timetable by combining the various permutations on the Transport for Cornwall website for 50 and 51 services, for weekdays and Sundays, and varying depending on whether it is a school day or school holiday, and it is possible that errors may have occurred in the process.
