BUS company Stagecoach has announced timetable changes across the region which start from May 26. 

It says the timetables are ‘enhanced’ to reflect seasonal demand and improve punctuality.

A spokesman said: ‘As we move into the summer, some areas will see timetables benefit from enhancements to better reflect the seasonal demand.

‘Some timetables will also see intermediate running times revised on all days of operation to improve reliability and punctuality.’

Service 2, which operates between Exeter, Newton Abbot and Dawlish, sees times revised each day.

Some departure times at Monday to Friday peak time journeys are changed to better suit school and college movements. 

There are some minor changes to the Saturday morning timetable, with a small number of journeys removed from the timetable.

Service 7 from Exeter to Totnes via Newton Abbot is also seeing revised times with additional buses scheduled at peak times. 

Service 39 between Bovey Tracey and  Newton Abbot also has revised timings as does Service 53 from Kingsteignton to Torbay Hospital.

The popular 12 service between Brixham and Newton Abbot is being ‘significantly’ changed. 

Stagecoach says: ‘Following a comprehensive review of our popular Service 12, there will be a number of significant changes to the timetable designed to better match passenger demand.

’Monday to Friday daytimes buses will run every 15 minutes between Newton Abbot and Brixham.

‘This will also be the case on Saturday daytimes, with buses every 20 minutes between Newton Abbot and Brixham.

‘There will be no changes to the frequency on Sundays and Public Holidays, with buses continuing to operate every 20 minutes during the main part of the day.

‘We have undergone a review of demand for travel during the evening and overnight on the service. 

‘As a result, the frequency daily after 1900 until the end of service will be reduced from every 20 minutes to every 30 minutes. 

‘Night journeys introduced last May on a trial basis will be withdrawn as they have not proved to be commercially viable.’

Service 22 between Dawlish Warren via St Marychurch in Torquay to South Devon College is also seeing revisions to its timings.
