Public transport in the Fal estuary area

This project has, owing to lack of freely-licenced information, come to a close for me (Kevin Steinhardt) at least. Do continue to carry on—if you feel it will better the universe and whatnot, but please only use open data to do so.

The Fal estuary area happens to be served by public transport, as well as having an extensive road network and the occasional cycle route[1] Below is a list of both the bus routes and ferry services[2] and feel free to add, if not there, any route of public transport[3] in the River Fal artery-spine. Do remember: this isn't a travel guide, and is an aid to the relationing[4] of public transport; do have a good day.

  9. As the Prince of Wales Pier exists on OSM, so if one had the location of the Flushing mooring point, one could draw a simple straight-line way across the water.
