Exeter Bus Station

Exeter Bus Station is closing at the end of March 2017 to allow for the substantial redevelopment of the site.

A new Exeter Bus Station will open in the winter of 2018, at the same time as Exeter’s new state-of-the-art leisure centre St Sidwell’s Point, which is also being developed by Exeter City Council.

The new bus station will include covered waiting and boarding areas and high quality facilities. It will replace the existing aging bus station, which was opened in 1964.

While the new bus station is being built, temporary measures will be place to enable services to continue operating smoothly.

After widespread consultation, a decision was taken to retain bus stands in the city centre.

The temporary measures will include bus stands / stops with weather protection and information for passengers, for services which currently use the bus station.

Nine stands will be used in Sidwell Street. Five will be in Paris Street and one in Cheeke Street. Three stands for coaches will also be based in Sidwell Street.

Stagecoach will shortly publicise which services will use which temporary stands.

Layover bays will be located in Red Lion Lane, Verney Street, Bampfylde Street, Paris Street, Summerland Street and Sidwell Street, at varying times during the new build construction phase.

A ticket sales facility, and welfare facilities for bus drivers, are also incorporated into the plan.

A temporary traffic solution will also allow traffic to access two of the Princesshay car parks via Southernhay East.

The temporary facilities will be in place by March 30, 2017, the date the existing bus station site needs to be vacant.
