PEOPLE will soon be able to travel from Wellington direct to Bristol by bus.

From September 13, Stagecoach's coach service - the South West Falcon - will be serving two new stops in the town.

The Falcon is an innovative interurban coach service connecting Plymouth, Exeter, Cullompton and Taunton with Bristol Airport and Bristol city centre.

Launched in 2016, it is the first and only public transport link from the South West to Bristol Airport and operates 20 journeys a day, seven days a week.

All nine coaches feature free WiFi, power charging, air conditioning and leather seats.

And passengers can even enjoy a night out in Bristol now thanks to Falcon as its coaches run 24/7.

Mike Watson, managing director at Stagecoach South West, said: “We are delighted to be able to offer the residents of Wellington a cost-effective and environmentally-friendly way to travel.

"By offering the commuters of Wellington a direct link to the key cities across the South West we hope to play an integral part in easing congestion on the M5 and boosting the region.”

The new stop is located at Wellington Cades Farm.

In Taunton, the Falcon stops at the Blackbrook Business Park.

Online bookings are open at, although you can still buy your ticket when you board, but are advised to use contactless payment if you can.
