Timetables in the South West

From 18th April 2021

We are introducing a slightly revised timetable on our Route 4 buses which connect Exeter with Cranbrook, Ottery St Mary and Honiton. A new stop has been introduced on Younghayes Road in Cranbrook.

This is great news for residents of the new houses in this area, as your walk to the stop is now even shorter! Buses which serve the full route, extending on to Honiton or Axminster will now serve Younghayes Road. Shorter trips between Cranbrook and Exeter will serve both Younghayes Road and Shareford Way.

Timetable Changes from 4th April 2021 New on bus seating

We are pleased to announce that, in light of the recent government announcement to relax some restrictions, from 4th April 2020 we will be introducing some new timetables to Exeter and Torbay areas to uplift our services. Please be aware that this does coincide with Easter, and our buses will be running a Sunday service on both Good Friday and Easter Monday.

We have continued to monitor our buses to insure we’re offering you the service level you need. We have identified a few areas where we’d like to add in some extra journeys to give you more frequent connections.

With the announcement of schools reopening from the 8th March our school buses have also resumed, with more information on our dedicated school services page. 

If you haven’t travelled with us since the COVID19 outbreak you will notice some changes on board our vehicles to enable social distancing to take while you travel with us. To keep people moving safely, some of our seats will be blocked off to allow you to sit at least 2 metres away from other passengers.
