Truro park and ride

Truro park and ride opened in the late 2000s with the service running from Langarth, west of Truro, into the city via Treliske, Highertown and the railway station, dropping passengers in River Street and Victoria Square before returning to Langarth. In 2015, the car park and park and ride terminus at Tregurra, east of the city, opened enabling the buses to run right through the centre of the city and providing a continuous shuttle from both sides of the city. The service is a separate service from the rest of the bus network in Cornwall with its own ticketing and pricing. It is a Cornwall Council owned service with First running the buses under contract to the Council.

The main service, PR1, runs Monday to Saturday, not bank holidays. The first buses of the day leave the car parks at 06:30 from Tregurra, 06:45 from Langarth. The last buses of the day leave the city centre for Tregurra at 19:25 and for Langarth at 19:06. Services run at 10 minute intervals in the peak periods and at 15-20 minute intervals for the quieter periods. An additional shuttle service, PR1A, operates between Langarth and Treliske hospital in the morning and afternoon peak times.

Until February 2023, all tickets whether day tickets or multi-day passes were purchased through the ticket offices at each end of the route. As from 6 February 2023, the ticket offices are no longer being used for that purpose. Day tickets must be purchased from the driver on the bus. See park and ride ticketing change.
