Buses Cut to Exeter
By Neil Price, Co-Editor

March 28, 2006: The latest bus timetable available at the Co-op shows bus services for Hatherleigh commencing on 19 March. The services from Hatherleigh to Exeter have been reduced to one early bus, returning early evening. The other services during the day have been taken off. The timetable states “alternative connections will be provided at other times for passengers wishing to travel from Hatherleigh to Exeter with additional journeys being provided between Hatherleigh and Okehampton.” The timetable only shows one outward option – that of leaving Hatherleigh at around 9.00 a.m. on a bus that reaches Okehampton at 9.25 a.m. If you are lucky you can then catch the 9.30 a.m. service to reach Exeter at 10.47 a.m., a journey taking nearly one and three quarter hours!
The mid morning service is used frequently by people in Hatherleigh, particularly those without transport and teenagers.
It is particularly annoying to note that the small communities of Exbourne and Jacbstowe now have an hourly service with thirteen buses to Exeter each day and fourteen coming back!
