Changes to Cornwall's bus network revealed
Sweeping changes have been unveiled to bus services in Cornwall following the decision by two operators to withdraw some services.
Cornwall Council said it had held discussions with public transport providers, Western Greyhound and First, in the light of an announcement which saw some routes axed entirely and others substantially reduced.
Bert Biscoe, Cornwall Council portfolio holder for highways and transport, said they had done their best but without extra funding could not rule out further cuts to services.
"The council's staff and bus operators have worked together to come up with a revised network which, while somewhat reduced, does ensure that those who need buses can get buses.

"It has been a complex and pressurised situation and I am very grateful to all those who have contributed brains, time and effort.
"There is little doubt, however, that without sufficient funding, the face of rural bus services will change and, going forward, we cannot rule out the loss of services where passenger numbers are particularly low."
Gordon Edwards, from TravelWatch SouthWest, said bus users recognised the "severe financial pressures" on service operators.
