Exeter – RED Honiton Road, BLUE Sowton & GREEN Matford Park & Ride to Exeter City Centre

Please note: Resurfacing work will start at Matford Park and Ride on 6 June 2016. The work is to improve the surface and drainage, and once complete will significantly increase the number of spaces available. During the work capacity will be reduced. Passengers are advised that the nearest alternative is at Sowton, and where possible we advise going straight there rather than risking a delay to your journey should a space not be available at Matford. The work is expected to be completed in September.

The National Bus Pass is valid on Park and Ride services from 9.30am Monday to Friday, and all day on weekends. Please note the National Bus Pass is not valid on the Hospital or the County Hall Park and Ride services.

Hospital Park and Ride

The Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital runs a Park and Ride service to their Wonford site from Digby.

County Hall Park and Ride

The PR6 Park and Ride service runs from Sowton to County Hall. At Sowton the bus picks up and drops off passengers from the layby in Sidmouth Road, with further stops on the inbound service at Digby & Sowton Station and Countess Wear. At County Hall there are two bus stops – by Matford Offices and by the side of Lucombe House.

Exeter Park and Cycle

There are Park and Cycle spaces at all Exeter Park and Ride sites. Park and Cycle works in the same way as Park and Ride, but with bicycles. It’s free, but you do need to apply for a permit.

Sowton Park and Ride and Honiton Road Park and Ride are owned by Devon County Council and operated by Stagecoach South West. Matford Park and Ride is owned and run by Exeter City Council.

Most Park and Ride car parks are locked between 7:30pm and 6am on Park and Ride operating days. On other days they remain locked. Overnight parking is not permitted on most Park and Ride sites.
