As usual you can click through on the links above to get full details including timetables and maps where available although it will be a while before they are all added to the pages. I have about 50 new timetables saved waiting to be processed – and there are lot more changes still to come through so its going to be a busy few weeks…

Hopefully Stagecoach will be publishing more detail for their new timetables fairly soon se we can all get a better idea of what's changing


  1. New September timetables for Stagecoach are on the Traveline website

  2. Is Stagecoach South West getting any new buses?

  3. Not aware of any myself as the new E400s promised were diverted elsewhere.

  4. I thought Northampton ( Stagecoach Midlands) was going to get some buses from Stagecoach South West but they've received buses from Stagecoach East and now buses are running around Northamptonshire with Cambridge and Haverhill service 13 all over them. No new buses there either.

    1. Diverted elsewhere. Was told but forget where, nowhere near Devon. Local SC fleet getting tatty.

    2. Totally agree - especially the 06 enviros used by SC.
