HOW bus routes in west Cornwall will look from November 3:

1/1A – Land's End/St Buryan/Penzance: timetable includes journeys covered by discontinued Western Greyhound (WG) services 501 and 504. Service 1 will provide coverage of Paul, Sheffield and Gwavas Estate, together with revised service 5.

2 – Penzance/Helston/Falmouth: simplified to an hourly service between Penzance and Falmouth via Helston, Monday to Saturday daytimes. Alternate buses run faster as service X2. The evening and Sunday service will be two-hourly between Helston and Penzance and hourly between Goldsithney and Penzance. This service will no longer operate via Perranuthnoe – a new service 13 will now serve this village.

5/5A – Sheffield/Paul/Newlyn/Penzance: service broadly hourly as current, but some journeys provided by service 1. A reduced evening service will be provided as 6A and a reduced Sunday delivery as part of service 1/1A.

6/6A – Mousehole/Newlyn/Penzance: will operate every 30 minutes Monday to Saturday daytime and hourly during evening and Sunday daytime. All daytime journeys will be via the current 6 route and some evening journeys will operate as 6A to serve Paul, Sheffield and Gwavas. Sunday evening journeys are withdrawn.

10/10A – Penzance/St Just: service revised to hourly from Penzance to St Just and continuing to Lower Boscaswell and return. Evening and Sunday service will be two-hourly.

11 – Penzance town service: will be combined into revised service 16 (see below).

13 – New service operating from Penzance to Camborne via Leedstown replacing and extending the former Western Greyhound service 513.

14/14A/14B – St Ives/Hayle/Camborne/Truro: service largely unchanged Monday to Saturday daytime. Evening and Sunday service reduced for winter.

16 – St Ives/Nancledra/Penzance: route revised within Penzance to operate via current service 11 routes. The service 16 will no longer operate to Penbeagle Estate in St Ives as this is served by services with St Ives Minibus Company. Certain service 16 journeys will now operate via, or continue to, Zennor, in part replacing Western Greyhound service 508.

17 – St Ives/Lelant/Penzance: service level similar on Monday to Saturday with a revised timetable. Evening and Sunday daytime journeys will no longer operate via Marazion. Sunday evening journeys are withdrawn.

18 – Truro/Camborne/Hayle/Penzance: service increased to every 30 minutes between Penzance and Camborne on Monday to Saturday daytimes, otherwise largely unchanged. Evening and Sunday services will now follow the daytime route and not operate via St Day/Carharrack and St Erth villages.

X18 – Penzance/Truro: reduced timetable; commuter journeys and one shopper bus facility to and from Truro retained.

19 – Penzance/Hayle Retail Park: this service is withdrawn.
