First Devon & Cornwall is a bus company operating services in the English counties of Devon and Cornwall. It is a subsidiary of FirstGroup.
Until December 2006 First Devon & Cornwall operated the last sizeable fleet of Bristol VRT double-deck buses in the United Kingdom. Some of these Bristol VRTs were preserved.
In April 2008, First Devon & Cornwall purchased Truronian. In 2014 First Somerset & Avon routes around Taunton were transferred to First Devon & Cornwall and rebranded as The Buses of Somerset.
First Devon & Cornwall routes cover much of Cornwall and South West Devon.
As at March 2013 the fleet consisted of 240 buses and coaches.
First Devon & Cornwall operate one of the older FirstGroup fleets with an average of 11.6 years. New purchases are rare with most buses transferred from other group fleets.
As at September 2013 the oldest buses in the fleet were seven 1987 Alexander RH bodied Volvo B10M-50s that have been converted to open top buses for services between Penzance, Lands End and St Ives.
