Coronavirus Update Close

Following government announcements on the roadmap out of lockdown and plans to gradually restore greater normality to everyday lives, we're making plans to get more services back on the road, including school services from 8th March. Please continue to check our latest timetables page for more information.

Let's keep working together to make travel as safe as possible. We're still doing enhanced cleaning and limiting available seats. You can help by avoiding busy times, using contactless payment where you can, keeping your distance and taking your litter with you.

You must wear a face covering throughout your journey, unless you are exempt.

Latest Timetables

From Sunday 10th January 2021 we’re introducing a temporary reduced timetable to our Falcon coach service. Whilst some longer distance coach services are currently pausing operation, we are delighted to be continuing to operate our Falcon route at reduced service levels. This will help those passengers that need to make essential journeys. We will, however be reducing the number of journeys as there are far fewer people travelling due to the government advice to only make essential journeys.

View our latest timetable here.

We’ll have 7 coaches a day leaving Plymouth Bristol bound. Trips will begin at 0100 7 days a week, with the last coach to Bristol at 1530. Return journeys will start at 0530 through until 2030 in the evening. You can download the temporary timetable here. 

In order to keep you and our drivers safe while you travel with us some of our seats are blocked off to allow you to sit at least 2 metres away from other passengers, so coaches will have a lower capacity than normal. For more information on travelling safely by bus please visit here.

We look forward to reintroducing a higher level of service as soon as possible and thank our loyal customers be they commuters, students, day trippers and holidaymakers for their on-going support at this challenging time.

To guarantee your seat, online bookings are open via, you can still buy your ticket when you board, but we advise that you do try to use contactless if you can.

The Falcon coaches are fitted with free Wi-Fi, USB power sockets, Contactless Payment and Air Conditioning for a comfortable journey every time.
