While we work to get back to normal, we may sometimes have to change our timetables.
Please check your journey before you travel.
If we do change things after you buy a ticket, you can use any reasonable alternative service or claim a full refund. In addition to this:
Due to the geography of the area we will be running separate buses on these two routes:
Cornwall bus – Plymouth – Gunnislake – Calstock
Devon bus – Plymouth – Bere Alston – Bere Ferrers
If you want to make a journey between two stations on different bus routes (e.g. Gunnislake to Bere Alston), you will need to change at Plymouth.
We will continue to run services to/from Devonport, Dockyard, Keyham and St Budeaux Ferry Road by:
No trains will stop at St Budeaux Victoria Road whilst the upgrades are taking place, however, we will stop additional trains at St Budeaux Ferry Road to compensate.
Check carefully as train times may be different to normal.
Bus stop at the junction joining Lang Gardens and Sand Lane
It’s best to let us know in advance if you need help. To find out more, visit GWR.com/PassengerAssist.
If you are not able to travel on one of our replacement bus services, an accessible taxi can be arranged for you free of charge. You can do this by:
Network Rail will be working in the Ernesettle area, between St Budeaux Victoria Road and Bere Ferrers. They will also be working in other areas along the line whilst this work is taking place.
Infrastructure renewals and repairs. This involves bridges, viaducts and other structures the line uses to run on.
Due to the amount of upgrade work taking place elsewhere on our network at weekends, the best time for Network Rail to complete the work is during the week.
Replacement buses will stop at stations in a different order to trains.
Buses from Plymouth to Gunnislake and Calstock will use the A388 and A390.
Buses to Bere Alston and Bere Ferrers will use the A386.
Updated timetable information will be available from around mid-October. You can find train/bus times when planning a journey at on our Train Times page. You can also produce your own printable timetable by visiting nationalrail.co.uk.
We are expecting Advance tickets to be available to buy from around mid-October.
