A comprehensive timetable covering Cornwall’s bus services was published in mid March 2024 to take effect from Sunday 31 March 2024. The complete timetable can be downloaded here: Cornwall Bus Timetable 31 March 2024.

Note that the composite timetable does not include the services run by First specifically for Truro and Penwith College, nor the GoCornwall services to Callywith College, although the general public can catch these services if they wish. First and Go Cornwall Bus have, in previous years, published specific timetable books for these services, but seem to have ceased doing so this year.

I have extracted from the composite guide the timetables for individual services that passengers may find more convenient to download than wading through the whole book that has over 100 pages. I have also included links to the individual timetables for the 2023/24 routes to Truro and Penwith Colleges and to Callywith College. See listing below.

For residents of the Rame peninsula who catch the Cremyll Ferry to Plymouth, I have included the ferry timetable and the timetable for Plymouth Citybus 34 that serves Stonehouse where the Cremyll Ferry lands and the Devonport drop off point from the Torpoint ferry.

There is also a useful mini-timetable booklet produced by Go Cornwall Bus called Tamar Connections that includes those GCB services that cross the Tamar between Plymouth and South East Cornwall (nos. 10, 11, 12, 70, 71, 75), plus Plymouth Citybus no. 34.

Some of the changes from the previous timetables include:
The service between St Ives and Truro currently numbered T2 runs as a half-hourly service daytime Monday to Saturday. This frequency will continue but alternate half-hours will be numbered T2 and T3. The T2 will run through Truro to St Austell, replacing the current 27 service; what will in future be branded as the T3 will run through Truro to Newquay, replacing the current 91 service. The evening and Sunday and bank holiday services on the 27 route will continue to be provided by Go Cornwall Bus under the number 27E. I have compiled a combined T2/27E timetable to cover all the services on the Truro-St Austell corridor.
In the west, the winter no. 7 service will be withdrawn as the circular Lands End Coaster route will restart covering this route. The 18/Tin Coaster and 19 Madron services will be incorporated into a revised 17/17A/17E timetable.
The 24 service operated by First between Fowey and Mevagissey will be split at St Austell with Fowey to St Austell covered by a revised 24 timetable, and St Austell to Mevagissey by a new 29 timetable; the 24 services operated by GCB will continue to operate over the whole route Fowey to Mevagissey with a revised timetable.


There are a few timetables that look a little odd, in particular the services operated by Travel Cornwall numbers 423, 497 and 499. These operate between Summercourt and Gorran Haven, Truro and Tregony respectively. They are used by the operator to position buses either to or from those locations prior to, or after completing schedules in those areas, or school transport in those areas. For example, the first 51 of the day to Veryan departs from Tregony at 06:45. In order to position that bus in Tregony, a bus runs as the 499 from Summercourt to Tregony. The last 51 service  of the day finishes at Veryan at 18:42. It then becomes the 499, leaving Veryan at 18:43 to return to the depot at Summercourt via Tregony at 19:02 then runs along the Probus bypass to Tresillian then via Ladock and Brighton Cross.
