Park-and-ride for Truro at Tregurra Park
In August 2015, the park and ride site opened. Motorists approaching from Tresillian are able to turn right into the site at the traffic lights about 200 yards before the Tregolls Road junction. Motorists approaching from the Newquay road can turn left into the site before the junction. There are more than 1000 parking spaces available. The buses take passengers into the city centre and on through the centre to the station, County Hall, Treliske, Truro College and the western park-and-ride terminus.
The fare is £2 per person for a one day ticket, i.e. you can hop on and off a park-and-ride bus as many times as you like on one day using the same ticket. On Saturdays, the tickets are just £1 per person. As from 1 May 2019, discounted fares for concessionary pass holders no longer apply. All adult passengers must pay the same price.
Purchase your ticket from the machines in the building at Tregurra. Show your ticket to the driver and make sure that you keep your ticket for your return journey. If you lose it, you will not be able to travel back on the park-and-ride bus because there are no facilities to issue tickets on the buses. If you buy a concessionary ticket, you must show your concessionary pass to the driver with your ticket.
There are cheaper fares for family groups.
Passengers can purchase 5-day, 20-day, 60-day or annual passes that provide a cheaper daily rate.
Note that the multi-day passes do not have to be used on consecutive days. For example, if you used the park-and-ride on average twice a week, you could buy a 60-day ticket and it would last you 30 weeks at a remarkably low daily use rate.
There is no charge for parking your car.
The buses run from before 7 a.m. in the morning until after 7 p.m. in the evening, Monday to Saturday. Buses run every 10-15 minutes for most of the day. The site is open to collect your car up until 8.30 p.m. Then the site is closed overnight. The service does not operate on Sundays.
Please note that the stops in the city centre for park-and-ride buses are:
Coming into Truro from the east: Quay Street (opposite Haven House), and Victoria Square.
Getting on in Truro to return to park-and-ride: River Street (outside museum), and Quay Street (outside Haven House).
The park-and-ride buses do not stop in Boscawen Street.
For further details, see Park for Truro From there, you can download a full timetable. However, as the buses run every 10 minutes in the mornings and after about 3 p.m., and every 15 minutes in the middle of the day, you don't really need to worry about the timetable. Just turn up and there will be a bus leaving in a very short time.
Extension to timetable for evenings from 30 March 2020: CANCELLED
The Council had announced that services will run later in the evenings as from Monday 30 March. Buses will run every 15 minutes until about 9.30 p.m.
However, because of the Coronavirus emergency and significant reductions in use of the service, the proposed extension of services to later in the evening will not now start on 30 March. Timetables will remain unchanged.
