Travellers will be able to travel as far as London Heathrow for just £1 from May 1

Journeys from North Devon to London Heathrow can cost as little as £1 next month.

Budget coach company Megabus.com is launching routes from Barnstaple from Monday, May 1 which will serve the airport, London, Birmingham, Nottingham and Bristol to name a few.

It’s the first time the company has served North Devon, and to celebrate the new routes, all fares from Barnstaple will be just £1 for the first week.

Megabus.com managing director Edward Hodgson said: “We are delighted to add these latest routes to the Megabus.com network.

“We are excited to be offering, for the first time, direct services to both Heathrow and Gatwick airports, providing passengers the cheapest possible option for travelling to and from these key hubs which are used by millions of people every year.

“Our aim is to provide new affordable transport options for people who previously may not have been able to afford to make these journeys, and by doing so we are delivering a boost to tourism and local communities.

“We look forward to continuing to welcoming more customers on board.”

The company – part of international transport group Stagecoach – has partnered with South Gloucestershire Bus and Coach Company Ltd to deliver the new routes.
