Please be aware of some small alterations to the temporary bus services introduced after the Council were informed by Webberbus that it would cease trading earlier this month.
These changes will take effect from Wednesday, 25 May.
In most cases there is no real change apart from some additional journeys. However the the 37/375 service from Bridgwater to Street will be running to a significantly revised timetable. Please see the new timetable in the list below.
Also, service 16 will depart from Cannington to Minehead 2 minutes earlier than before.
All services taking students to schools and colleges will continue as at present.
Below is a list of the affected Webberbus services, and replacements where they have been arranged, with links to the relevant timetables for detailed information. We will keep this page updated as replacement services are added or changed.
We apologise for the disruption that this has caused. Webberbus tickets that are in date will be accepted by Buses of Somerset and First West of England until their expiry date.
