Exeter bus Station

Opening 25th July 2021

We’re delighted to announce that Exeter’s new bus station will be opening on Sunday July 25th 2021. Building started on the state of the art facility in January 2019, with the striking glass fronted building situated at the heart of the city centre. The new station is set conveniently next to the brand new St Sidwell’s point leisure centre- set to open later this year, and also nestled between Princesshay, Sidwell Street and minute’s walk to Exeter’s High Street shops.

The new station, built by Kier contractors, carries a BREEAM accreditation which is an independent assessment of the sustainability performance. The building’s state of the art designs and green technology has rated the facility at over 60%, which sets it in amongst the top 25% of UK new non-domestic buildings for sustainability.

Council Leader Phil Bialyk said ‘ I’m really excited for passengers across the region to see our fantastic new Bus Station. The new facility will serve as a brilliant arrival point for people visiting Exeter,  and a modern well equipped departure lounge for people leaving the city.  This is great for Exeter and a massive improvement for bus users across the region.’

The new Bus Station will offer a massive improvement for passengers, with features such as glass-fronted covered waiting and boarding areas and high quality facilities. Buses will arrive behind automatic glass doors at each stand, ensuring that you will be protected from the elements in all weathers. You’ll also be offered an abundance of real time information throughout the concourse; with a dedicated digital display at each stand, plus departure screens throughout the station, alerting you to upcoming departures.

We’ve also worked with our stakeholders to delivered audio departures at each stand, offering the latest information to our passengers with visual impairment. In addition to this the site is fully equipped with CCTV offering a safe waiting environment for passengers.

Our information point will feature the latest area guides, plus a host of maps and ticket information. You can pop in to pick up your local frequency information, or browse connections from the bus station and ideas for day trips throughout the South West.

Stagecoach South West Managing Director Mike Watson said ‘We’re so excited to open our new Bus Station at the heart of Exeter city centre. It’s a great time to be welcoming more people back to bus as restrictions across the UK are lifted. We’re delighted to be able to offer our passengers a brand new modern facility packed with travel information. We’ve made a significant investment in the latest technology to display clear departure information. We hope that our passengers will find traveling with us is even easier than before.’

The new Bus Station officially opens on Sunday 25th July with Stagecoach hosting a family fun day to celebrate the occasion. Featuring live entertainment, giveaways plus special guests Radio Exe between 10am and 2pm, it’s a great opportunity to come along and check out the new site. Plus our friends at Kier have worked with local schools to produce some handmade bunting which will be on display at the bus station to celebrate the opening.
