First Devon & Cornwall


First Devon & Cornwall

First Devon & Cornwall is a bus operating company providing services within the English counties of Devon and Cornwall. It is a subsidiary of First Group which operates public transport throughout the UK. It was formed from two previous operators: Western National (in Cornwall and South Devon) and Red Bus (in North Devon). First Devon and Cornwall routes stretch as far north as Ilfracombe, Tiverton and Exeter in the east and to Land's End in the west of Cornwall. However, some parts of the region are not served by First buses.

First Devon and Cornwall was known by bus enthusiasts for it large fleet of Bristol VRT double-deck buses, but the last examples of this type were withdrawn from ordinary service on 9th December 2006. A small number are retained for open top tourist services and special events.
