Flushing and Mylor residents are very pleased to once again have a bus to take them to Truro, as Fal River Buses |started a new trial service.

The 330 route was run for the first time on December 16, with the company posting photos online of a large queue and bus full of chatting passengers.

The trial service, which runs on Tuesdays and Fridays from Flushing and Mylor, via Perranarworthal, Perranwell, Perranwell Station and Carnon Downs to Truro and the Royal Cornwall Hospital, will |hopefully become permanent if it proves to be well used.

John Symons, Mylor Parish Council chairman, said: “Everybody seemed to think it was a good idea, but everybody would just before Christmas.

“I think it went quite well, hopefully they will introduce it permanently, even just one or two buses a week to Truro.”

Tim Light, of Fal River Buses, said: “The bus trial from Flushing and Mylor has been encouraging, we hope to be able to do the same in the New Year.

“We thank the local residents for their support, and we have received positive feedback.”

The trial will run for three weeks, and if the service proves popular the company will seek permission from Cornwall Council and the Traffic Commissioners to make the route permanent.
