East Devon bus services face the axe
Four services are being withdrawn from April 11.
THE axe is to fall on bus services across East Devon from April 11, when four services will be withdrawn.
Devon County Council currently subsidises the affected services, but funding is being stopped.
Withdrawn services include the 690 service from Axminster to Bridport, which travels via Hawkchurch and Marshwood.
Service 686 from Dalwood to Axminster is also being withdrawn and replaced by a Fare Car alternative.
The 705 service from Sidbury to All Saints School is to be withdrawn and there will be changes to the 387 bus, which provides a service from Sidmouth to Taunton. The Saturday service is being stopped and journeys from Monday to Friday will be operated by Dartline and revised. A new timetable will be available shortly.
The 695 service from Honiton to Cullompton is being converted to a Fare Car. And the Fare Car F11 service is being reduced to operate one journey per day - to Axminster on Tuesdays and to Chard on Wednesdays and Fridays.
