Stagecoach South West today confirmed that it will be launching a new fleet of buses for its busiest Park & Ride route in Exeter. 

Starting from 4th January 2016 the Red Honiton Road Park & Ride will have a fleet of four brand new double decker buses, worth £800,000, all of which will feature free Wi-Fi, allowing customers to connect, share and play on the move. The Red Park and Ride route runs from Honiton Road to the city centre up to every 12 minutes, 7 days a week.   

Stagecoach will retain its existing fleet of single decker buses used on the Blue (Sowton) and Green (Matford) Park and Ride routes, however they will undergo a repaint into complimentary smart new liveries. 

Bob Dennison, Managing Director of Stagecoach South West, said: “I am delighted to announce the launch of brand new buses for our most popular Exeter Park & Ride site. I hope they will welcome people back to work in the New Year in style!” 

Councillor Stuart Hughes Devon County Council’s Cabinet Member for Highways Management said: “The launch of these new buses is good news for Exeter and for the people who travel on the bus network. I hope these new vehicles will encourage more people to use public transport in and around the city.”
