A Brief History Of Travel Cornwall
Travel Cornwall can trace its roots back to post-war Britain when a massive rebuilding project necessitated the need for a large growth in the road haulage industry. This continued through to the 1960s and early 1970s with a nationalised transport network, and then into the 1980s when the country was booming and both the goods and passenger transport industries had once again been de-nationalised. During this time, a great deal of experience was gained in both national and international freight operations.
The 1990s heralded a change of direction into passenger transport operations after opportunities were identified, as a result of the deregulation of nationwide bus operations. A successful coach operation was also formed, providing private hire and coach holidays throughout the UK and Europe.
1997 saw the birth of what was to go on to become Travel Cornwall when operations started in the South West. The subsequent years saw a strong growth in a number of markets, from taxis to minibuses and on to coaches and bus services, with Travel Cornwall now arguably one of the most successful passenger transport operations that the area has seen, and a management team who have decades of experience between them along with a staff who are hand-picked to provide the best possible service.
The future looks good for Travel Cornwall, with a management team who are third generation in the transport industry and bring with them the experience needed to ensure that the customer’s expectations are met and exceeded every time.
