YOUR GUIDE TO TAKING THE TRAIN FROM ST IVES AND CARBIS BAY
With trains seven days a week to St Erth where you can change on to the main line, St Ives is great for day trips by train.
Trains depart every half an hour on both the St Ives Bay Line and the main line through most of the day.
HOW TO BUY TICKETS
Up to two dogs are allowed on the train per person, free of charge. Just bring a lead.
BRING YOUR BUGGY
You can bring your pram or buggy. If possible please fold it down once on the train. Under 5s travel free.
On trains between St Ives and St Erth, two bikes are allowed on a first come, first served basis. More may be permitted if the train is quiet. On high speed services on the main line, reservation is mandatory.
Why not try commuting by train? Regular passengers can make substantial savings by taking advantage of season tickets.
Season tickets are available for one week, one month or any period up to a year. Buy your season ticket at a staffed station such as St Erth. Take along a recent passport-sized photo. Once you have a photocard, weekly tickets can then be bought on the train.
