Cornwall is warned the bus to work or school may not turn up tomorrow morning.

It is as drivers go ahead with a strike over pay and conditions.

First says it is prioritising school and college runs but cannot promise anything.

In a statement First Group said:


“The action that the Union is taking will cause undue disruption to hardworking people in Devon and Cornwall, who rely on our services to get to work, education and leisure destinations.  We deeply regret this but we are afraid that despite lengthy talks and a willingness to negotiate on behalf of the company, an agreement has not been reached.

“We would like to offer our sincere apologies to our customers who will be inconvenienced by the action that is taking place.  

“On Friday we will prioritise contracted school and college services in Cornwall and hope to run contracted services to Truro College, a shuttle bus service between Falmouth and the Tremough Campus and the Eden Rider service.  We are also looking at whether it is possible to run any other tendered services on behalf of Cornwall Council.  In Devon we hope to run services to Tavistock School and a reduced Park and Ride Service in Plymouth (with buses running circa every half an hour, rather than every 7 minutes on normal days). All other services are expected to be disrupted.  Up to date details regarding the disruption will be communicated as soon as possible and throughout the day on Friday 26 October.

“In light of the disruption, Customers who use our normal commercial services are advised to prepare for significant disruption on Friday and should consider finding alternative ways to make important journeys. Traveline, the organisation which provides independent travel advice, may be able to assist customers looking for information about alternative public transport options.

“The company will do all it can to update its website, Facebook and Twitter pages as more information becomes available regarding the services that will operate on the day.”
