Bus Update 2022

Published: 03 January 2022

118 Bus Service: Tavistock - Okehampton. Operated by Dartline.

From the 20th November 2021 the timetable and route for the 118 bus service will be enhanced so that it allows passengers to interlink their travel with the Dartmoor Line at Okehampton Station. This follows joint working between the Council and GWR. The Dartmoor Line will operate with a temporary timetable until the 12th December 2021, when it will transition to a permanent timetable. To follow suit and optimise the bus-train connectivity, the 118 bus will operate a temporary time table for the same period. This will be replaced by a permanent timetable on the 12th December 2021 which will include operating on Sundays. The Sunday service will also include a further rail connection to the Tamar Line at Gunnislake Station. The Council is supporting the enhancements to the 118 service by using new government funding allocated in early 2020. Detailed information and DCC Press Releases regarding the Dartmoor Line and 118 bus service can be found on the following three web pages.
