Recently arrived back into Newquay Airport and discovered just what a challenge that location is for public transport.

There is a bus service to Newquay and one to Padstow....and then changes to Truro, Bodmin and onwards.

Fortunately, the staff at BioTravel were on the ball and came up with this neat solution for the four passengers in the queue (two of us to Lands End, one for Falmouth, one for St Ives).

A BioTravel cab to Truro railway station for all of us, connecting with a train to Falmouth for our new-found travel buddy from Cologne, which is incidentally where we had just come from, a train to Penzance for the two of us, dropping off the brother of the bridegroom, who had travelled from Ireland, at St Erth for the branch line in time to make the wedding at St Ives, leaving us with a short cab ride back to Lower Treave. Not quite Steve Martin and John Candy...we only shared the transport!

Well done to BioTravel, here's their website

  2. Thanks Nick...but until there is a decent shuttle connection to a mainline station or Truro bus station (and onward connections) then its always going to be a public transport challenge for those of us who don't live in or are travelling to Newquay/Padstow. BioTravel did a good job on this occasion. N
