HOW TO BUY TICKETS
Crediton station does not have ticket-buying facilities, so you can buy on the train from the Conductor (card or cash). Or buy in advance on the GWR app. For longer trips, buy up to 12 weeks in advance to save.
Up to two dogs are allowed on the train per person, free of charge. Just bring a lead.
BRING YOUR BUGGY
You can bring your pram or buggy. If possible please fold it down once on the train. Under 5s travel free.
Why not try commuting by train? Regular passengers can make substantial savings by taking advantage of season tickets.
Season tickets are available for one week, one month or any period up to a year. Buy your season ticket at staffed stations such as Exeter Central or St David's. Take along a recent passport-sized photo. Once you have a photocard, weekly tickets can then be bought on the train.
