Bus service linking communities to Okehampton Summer Sunday train service

Tuesday, 28 May 2019 - Community News Times reporter by Times reporter editorial@tavistock-today.co.uk A new bus service will link Lydford, Brentor, Tavistock and Gunnislake Station to Okehampton’s Summer Sunday trains. There are two round trips each Sunday until September 8, allowing people to take the train from Exeter and Crediton and make a day trip by public transport to Dartmoor destinations other than Okehampton. Similarly, Plymouth people will be able to do the same via Gunnislake. Those travelling on the bus to Gunnislake Station will be able to connect with trains on the scenie Tamar Valley line to Calstock and Plymouth. The buses also offer the opportunity to do a circular trip around Devon, with travel one way via Dartmoor and the other via the main line through Dawlish. In addition, they provide a new Sunday public transport option for local residents in Brentor, Lydford and Mary Tavy. The bus is deemed a tourist service so concessionary and free passes will not be valid. Local fares will be available between all stops. Funded by CrossCountry via their Community Engagement fund, the service has been organised by the Devon and Cornwall Rail Partnership and is operated by Plymouth Citybus.
