We currently run a minibus service to eight different locations in Devon and Somerset, six mornings (Monday to Saturday) and four evenings (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday) a week, throughout the School year.

In North Devon we have two routes:

Barnstaple which incorporates South Molton and Moortown Cross on the A361 and Dulverton which stops at Exebridge and Bampton.

In Somerset we have a Taunton run which incorporates Wellington and White Ball with a stop at Tiverton Parkway train station for those who prefer to use the train into School.

Crediton is the fourth route with stops at the Devonshire Dumpling (Copplestone), Crediton and Cadbury Cross.

There is an Exe Valley route which stops at the Ruffwell Inn, Stoke Canon and Exeter St David's station and a M5 route which starts at Darts Farm and incorporates a stop at Cullompton.

The final two routes travel the furthest with the Sidmouth and Heathfield Runs.

The Sidmouth route starts at Sidford park carpark with further stops at the Hare and Hounds in Sidford, Heathpark services in Honiton and Daisymount on the A30.

The Heathfield route has its start at the Heathfield Industrial Estate Newton Abbot and travels along the A38 and stops at Exeter Racecourse.

Each minibus is modern and comfortable and capable of carrying 14-16 passengers.
