118 Rail Link bus for Okehampton station

Dartline 118 Rail Link bus

A Rail Link bus service will connect with trains at Okehampton station, providing joined-up public transport options for passengers along the 118 bus route between Tavistock and Okehampton.

The bus will also provide a handy alternative for those wanting to avoid the 15 to 20-minute walk up the hill from Okehampton town centre to the station.

When will the bus service start?
The Rail Link bus will begin on the same day as the Dartmoor Line rail service (Saturday 20th November). While trains will run seven days a week, the bus will initially run Monday-Saturday only, with Sunday buses to begin from 12th December.

How much are fares?
For those travelling from Okehampton town to the station there will be a flat fare of £1.00. From further afield, a maximum fare of £3.00, single or return, is being introduced for passengers on the 118 who have a valid rail ticket.

Who is running the service?
The bus service is operated by Dartline and is financially supported by Devon County Council. GWR is working to maximise visibility and reach of the service by funding marketing and provision of information.
