Hatherleigh Minibus to link with Sunday Train 20th August

In News by Town Council

Hatherleigh Bus to Sunday Train day! (formerly the Sunday Rover).

Like last year, the Community Minibus is booked on Sunday 20th August to take passengers to Okehampton to link with the Sunday Train to Exeter, for a day away.  Leave your driving and parking worries behind and jump aboard!

The bus will depart Hatherleigh Co-op bus stop at 09.00 to meet the train departing Okehampton for Exeter Central Station at 09.55.

Return journey will leave Exeter Central Station at 16.29 and the bus will have you safely back in Hatherleigh at around 18.00.

Seats need to be booked and paid for in advance. Visit the Paper Shop to get your name down.

The return minibus fare will be £3.00 per adult and £2.00 per child under 12 years.  Sorry no bus passes.  Children under primary school age will need to bring their own car/booster seat.

The return train fare is £5.20 payable on the train and any Senior Railcard holders get the discount as on an ordinary train by showing their card to the guard.

The cost of the minibus is being subsidised by the Town Council to show support for the OkeRail campaign which aims to promote the use of the train to show our Government that there is huge local support for a regular weekly train service to Exeter.
