Transport

Our Transport Scheme is available to all students. All buses used are service buses and are available throughout most of Cornwall, and a bus pass on this scheme offers flexible travel at considerably reduced rates.

Bursary and subsidised bus pass

Students whose household income is less than £31,000 per year may receive a subsidised Truro and Penwith College bus pass, or Cornwall Council assisted transport costs on application (subject to review). For continuing students it will be dependent on a minimum of 90% attendance during the previous term, as recorded on the College’s MIS database. Higher Education students are not eligible for a subsidised bus pass.

A College transport service is available for students who don’t qualify for subsidised travel. The College can arrange a bus pass on First service routes. In addition, we also provide transport links with Looe. More details are available from the College Transport Desk.

Timetables

Truro College Bus Timetables - Sep 2020

Please see changes to St Austell Bus Services

Penwith College Bus Timetables - Sep 2020

Daily Shuttle Buses from Truro

Changes to College Bus Services October 20

 

Starting Wednesday, October 14th - Changes to 201 service from Camborne

In the morning they will leave at Camborne Bus Station at 08.09 calling at Redruth Rail Station at 08.34, then Chacewater at 08.44, calling at all stops.  They will be called the 201 buses.   In the evening they will depart form the bus bay with all other 200 series College buses.

This will mean there will be no need to use the public T1 and T2 services and you will be refused travel at the start and end of the day on those public bus routes if using a College permit.

We very much hope this will improve the quality and safety of travel for all bus users.  Please remember to wear your face coverings at all times when travelling on buses. This is a legal requirement and you risk a significant fine if you forget or refuse and are not exempt.

Transport problems?

We have 34 buses over 29 routes and are adding more services all the time to get you here. We also guarantee to get you home if there’s ever an issue.

If you have a problem, please contact us on 01872 305702.
