Here's are the nice new-ish smaller busses. Cool, eh? Plenty of room for buggies, scooters, dogs and even people.

Is it like the IOM where you just ring up and a massively expensive private minibus turns up at your house the next day and takes you into town for £2?

Is the service farmed out to private operators with a Transport for Cornwall logo slapped on the side? Or run by the taxpayer?

Plenty of room you say? Go Cornwall Bus says otherwise

Some Class 2 scooters (up to 1000mm length and 600mm wide) can also be accepted onto our buses, but the ‘turning circle’ needs to be less than 1200mm.

If you’re not sure whether your scooter will fit, we can arrange a home visit from one of our accessibility officers to check.

UK regulations state that only one wheelchair or scooter can be carried in the designated accessible space, so if there is a wheelchair or scooter user already on board, we cannot take another.

As opposed to the IOM where they would say “If you’re not sure whether your scooter will fit we can arrange for you and your scooter to be thrown off a bus. Then for a public protest to ensue. Then for your MHK to have to get involved by asking questions in Keys during three years of departmental bullying to make sure that you will never, ever, be able to use a bus again”
