Torbay Service changes 29th May

Having heard noises of service changes from Stagecoach South West, due to happen towards the end of May, I took to Traveline to investigate. 

Service X46 will have a new timetable, with late night journeys to and from Exeter on Fridays and Saturdays. 

Service 11 will be withdrawn and replaced by the revised 22 route which is extended to Dawlish Warren every hour, with the other two journeys per hour terminating at St Marychurch. Sadly, the late night journeys from Dawlish Warren have seemingly been withdrawn, with the last bus now 2010. 

Service 'hop 12' will have a new timetable, with a lower journey time (and thus two less vehicles on the route) to complement the new Torre reversal scheme, and the South Devon Link Road between Kingskerswell and Newton Abbot. 

Service 66/66B and other varients will be withdrawn and replaced with a new service 13 & 13B which connects Newton Abbot to Totnes & Brixham via the majority the previous 66 route. The 13 will serve Newton Abbot, Aller Brake, The Willows, Torbay Hospital, Foxhole, Roselands, South Devon College and then onto Brixham as the current 13 does. The 13 will run from South Devon College to Totnes, and then via Berry Pomeroy to Torbay Hospital and then on to Newton Abbot via Aller Brake. There will be a two hourly service on each variant. 

The other 66 routes, such as the 66C and D will remain the same, but be numbered 13C/D. 


  1. With the 22 Starting as a combined service with the 11 and the Reduction of Double Deckers on the 12 I would imagine 18131,18132 and 18074 will disappear from Torbay, looks like Exeter are getting 12 New MMC ADL 400s later in the year.
