Stagecoach announce more buses for Launceston and Okehampton

03 Feb 2015

  • New timetable starts from 22nd February, with service X9/X10 renamed 6/6A
  • Timetable retains peak journeys between Launceston and Exeter 
  • Sunday and Bank Holiday service between Exeter and Bude will also be introduced

Stagecoach South West confirmed today (3rd February) that, from Sunday 22nd February, it will be introducing a new timetable for buses running between Launceston, Okehampton and Exeter and Bude, Holsworthy, Okehampton and Exeter.  

The operator, in partnership with Devon County Council, will be revising its current X9/X10 timetable to respond to the needs of customers in Launceston left stranded by the withdrawal of Western Greyhound’s 510 service. The revised bus route will be renamed the 6/6A – a direct reference to the Launceston service operated by Devon General between 1930s and 1970s.

From Monday to Saturday the timetable will offer four journeys between Launceston and Exeter and five between Exeter and Launceston, with key early morning and afternoon peak journeys matching those currently operated by Western Greyhound. There will also be a morning and afternoon connection between Bude and Launceston.

On Sundays and on Bank Holidays the operator is introducing a twice daily service between Exeter and Bude.

Unlimited travel between Launceston and Exeter – and on all other Stagecoach South West buses - starts from just £26 per week.

The new 6/6A timetable is available to view online and will be in print very shortly. For travel information on the go customers can now follow Stagecoach on Twitter @StagecoachSW.
