In addition, the C service to Sandy Park will be running for the Exeter Chiefs home game against Sale Sharks.

Bob Dennison, Managing Director of Stagecoach South West, said: “I am delighted to provide these Boxing Day services for our passengers across Devon, encouraging people to use public transport over the festive period and to make towns and cities more accessible for people during the holidays.” 

Stagecoach will be operating special timetables right across the holiday period, with services finishing early on both Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve. There will be no buses operating on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.
