Coronavirus Update Close

National lockdown restrictions are in place across England until 2 December but bus services are running as normal. You should only travel for work, education or other permitted reasons. 

In South Wales, all of our timetables will go back to what we were running before the 'firebreak' lockdown. There will also be some timetable changes to a number of Aberdare services to improve connectivity. 

The new tier system is in operation across Scotland, but if you need to travel, make sure you're up-to-date with what's happening in your area by checking the local government guidance.

We've put in place measures to allow you to travel safely including limiting available seats on buses and enhanced cleaning. Unless you’re exempt, you must wear a face covering throughout your journey. Please avoid busy times, use contactless payment where you can, keep your distance and take your litter with you. Stay up to date on our Coronavirus page.


Stagecoach South West confirms changes to Newton Abbot area timetables

28 Jun 2018

  • New timetables for routes 13 and 88 to start from Sunday 22 July
  • Changes follow on from customer consultation earlier in the year
  • Route 13 changes include new links to Kingsteignton & Torbay Hospital
  • Route 88 to combine 70/77 to create 30 min cross town link

Stagecoach South West has confirmed that, starting 22 July, it will be introducing new timetables on its 13 and 88 bus routes.


They take into account new housing developments in the area and changing travel patterns, alongside customer feedback following a public consultation earlier in the year.


Route 13


Route 13 will extend to Kingsteignton to provide additional capacity during busy times and create new, direct links to The Willows, Torbay Hospital, South Devon College and Brixham. Journeys from Newton Abbot towards Aller will serve Torquay Road and East Street instead of the train station.

There will be changes to the route between Brixham, Paignton and Torbay Hospital to restore many of the links previously provided by Local Link route 67. Buses between Brixham and South Devon College will run on their existing route. After this, they will then use Waterleat Avenue, Colley End Road, Paignton Bus Station and Marldon Road. Customers for Foxhole can connect onto the ‘Fox’ at Colley End Road and Marldon Road.


Brixham departure times will coordinate with our 18A service. To make the connection as easy as possible, the bus stop is moving from Bolton Street to Bank Lane so buses stop right next to each other.


Buses will run hourly throughout the day instead of every 2 hours and the current variations for particular school and college flows will remain in place.


Route 88


The new route 88 timetable merges routes 70 and 77 in order to create a cross town route that runs every 30 minutes between Buckland and Mile End. Buses then continue to Ashburton and Totnes every hour creating new links to the railway station.


New timetables will shortly be available online and in print. Customers can also download the free Stagecoach app - available in the App and Play stores - or use the website journey planner to plan their journeys. New timetable information will be available via the app or journey planner from week commencing 2 July 2018.
