Cornwall: rural bus services »
The provision of bus services in a rural county like Cornwall is extremely challenging. A significant element of the County's population is dispersed across a large rural area, with difficulties in accessing services and facilities. Conversely, there is growing congestion in and around the main towns, impacting on the reliability of bus services. The impact of tourism trips in the County also puts additional pressures on parts of the transport network at peak times of the year. These contrasting requirements illustrate the challenge in ensuring that bus service provision meets the needs of the people travelling in Cornwall. There is also a need to build upon the successes of the last five years that have demonstrated that people are prepared to use public transport in Cornwall when the quality, frequency and reliability is right.
