Night Buses

Four new night buses services are brought to you in partnership with Devon County Council. Buses will connect residential fringe areas to Exeter city centre from April 15th 2022 on Friday and Saturday nights.


As pandemic restrictions have been lifted we've teamed up with the Devon County Council public transport team to connect residential areas of Exeter to evenings out in the city centre. Exeter city centre has a variety of restaurants and leisure facilities open until late, by providing an affordable service to get people home, the partnership hopes to boost city centre economy but more importantly keep residents safe after their evening out.


Night buses will be introduced to popular corridors across the city, keeping residents connected to places of work and evenings out.  Service will run hourly in each direction on Friday and Saturdays, to provide additional buses after the usual evening schedule from midnight right through until 4am.


From the 15th April night service will be launched across the following routes, click the links to view or download the new timetables:


Route A connecting Alphington with Thornpark Rise via the City Centre

Routes E1/E2 connecting Exwick with the City Centre via the RD&E Hospital

Routes I/J connecting Whipton with Countess Wear via the City Centre

Route L connecting Pinhoe with the City Centre


In additional to four extra trips on route E1/E2, the night journeys will also be re routed to serve the RD&E hospital from 2357, offering a late night connection for hospital staff.
