We have been advised by First Group of the following changes to some local services:-
Service 1/1A (Penzance – Lands End) Increased the frequency to offer up to two buses an hour during the summer period (24 May – 31 August inclusive). During this summer season it is hoped to run an open top on these routes most of the time. Service 1 travels between Penzance and Lands End via Newlyn, Lamorna, St Buryan, Sennen and Sennen Cove. Service 1A travels between Penzance and Lands End via Newlyn, Lamorna, St Buryan, Treen and Porthcurno.
Service 5 (Lamorna – Penzance) All journeys on service 5 will be renumbered either 1B via Alverton, Rope Walk or 1C via Newlyn Coombe at the request of Cornwall Council. Service 1C journeys will no longer serve Roscadghill Parc but alternative facilities will be available on services 11 and 16A.
A new ‘shopperbus‘ facility will be provided on Monday to Saturday (except public holidays) from Lansdowne Estate, Boswergy to Penzance town centre departing at 1056hrs and returning from Green Market at 1328hrs.
Service 6 (Mousehole – Penzance) Additional journeys will operate on Sunday and public holidays until Sunday 31 August 2014 providing a bus every 30 minutes between Mousehole Old Coastguard Hotel and Penzance Bus Station via Newlyn between 0905hrs and 1735hrs.
Services 10/10A (Morvah – Penzance) Cornwall Council contract changes have resulted in minor alterations. Service 10A journeys will no longer serve Roscadghill Parc though alternative facilities will be available on services 11 and 16A. The 0610hrs Penzance Bus Station to St Just Bus Terminus and the 0638hrs St Just Bus Terminus to Madron Trelawney Estate journeys on Monday to Friday will be withdrawn due to very low customer demand. An additional 0640hrs Penzance Bus Station to Madron Trelawney Estate journey will operate on Monday to Friday.
Service 11 (Penzance Town Service) New service 11 will operate hourly on Monday to Saturday daytime between 0900hrs and 1725hrs between Eastern Green Sainsburys and Roscadghill Parc via Penzance Bus Station, Penzance Town Centre and Pendennis Road. Manor Way will be served once on every return journey to and from Roscadghill Parc.
