    Just off the M5 Junction 29, north or southbound, and A30 (from Honiton) EX2 7NL.

An additional service runs between Sowton and County Hall at peak times.

From the fourth site, at Digby, a service is operated by Dartline Coaches to the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital.

More information

For more information on the location of the car parks (including postcodes), facilities, boarding points in the city centre, bus times and prices, visit  Devon County Council - Park & Ride.

The English National Bus Pass can be used on all of these services from 9.30am on weekdays and all day at weekends and public holidays.

Please note that all Park and Ride sites have height restrictions (full details from Devon County Council - Park & Ride) and are therefore not suitable for motor caravans. In the case of Matford Park & Ride Car Park, ten unrestricted spaces are available on an adjacent site to the right of the entrance. Alternatively, the Haven Banks Car Parks (close to the city's historic Quayside) has no height restriction.
