Stagecoach South West introduces timetable changes across the network this spring.

  • Changes follow a review of congestion and travel flows across the region to improve the reliability and punctuality of bus timetables.
  • New connections are offered across several services with other timetables seeing increased frequencies.
  • Some changes are introduced in partnership with our local transport authorities.

Local bus operator Stagecoach South West today announced changes across their regional bus network. Bus timetables across Devon will see improvements to offer customers a more reliable and punctual service.

In addition to providing more robust timetables, some routes will offer more frequent connections and in some areas journeys to new destinations are provided.

Stagecoach South West Managing Director Peter Knight said: ‘We look forward to being able to offer more robust timetables for our customers this spring. It has become increasingly challenging to be able to run our services reliably with multiple roadworks and congestion related delays. Roadworks and the performance of the highway are now the biggest challenge to us being able to provide reliable bus services in Devon. We are working closely with our partners at Devon County Council to try and improve this for customers travelling in the region.’
