  • Changes follow a period of consultation and will take effect from 3 September 2018
  • Major enhancements to 56 between Exeter, Met Office and Airport
  • Also revisions to Exmouth town and East Devon services
  • New service, the ‘I’, to provide circular route linking with ‘J’
  • Extension of ‘K’ to serve Exeter Science Park

Stagecoach South West has confirmed that, starting from 3 September 2018, there will be changes to a number of its East Exeter and East Devon bus services.

The changes follow a period of consultation which has taken into account feedback from customers and various stakeholders. Stagecoach would like to thank everyone who took the time to respond.


Thanks to East Devon Council and East Devon Growth Point funding, the 56 will see significant enhancements to the route between Exeter St David’s, the City Centre, Met Office, Science Park, Sky Park and Exeter Airport.


There will be revisions to Exmouth town services and a number of East Devon services, including the introduction of larger buses on some journeys and additional connections.


In Exeter a new anti-clockwise service, the ‘I’, is being introduced and will link with the ‘J’ to provide a circular route connecting the city centre with IKEA in both directions of travel. Service K will extend to Exeter Science Park.
