Have you seen our fleet of brand new buses on service I, J and K in Exeter? In December 2018 we invested £2.5 million in 14 new buses for the service. Your new buses have leather seats, USB charging and free wi-fi. Just like all of our buses, the new fleet can be tracked through our mobile app and have contactless ticket machines meaning you don’t need to worry about having cash again!
Where can I catch the bus?
Digby Tesco (service I and J) - getting the bus from Digby Tesco is easy, the bus stop is right outside the store so there is no need to worry about carrying those shopping bags. Buses stop opposite the petrol station , just by the main entrance to the Store.
IKEA (service I and J) – whether you’re visiting the store to experience the room settings to squeeze the upholsteries, open the cabinets or simply visit the café, service I connects you to the store every 20 minutes from the city centre. Buses stop right outside the IKEA store.
City Centre (service I, J and K) – We know that Exeter is the regions favourite place for shopping, culture and leisure, that’s why we can connect you there up to every 10 minutes using services I, J and K. The High Street bus stops are in the heart of the City Centre and convenient for shopping, the Cathedral and all of the other attractions the City Centre offers. The High Street is only used by buses and cycles.
