A busy week

Have had a manic week at work so not done much PT work in the evenings but hopefully can catch up a bit now…

Last week

After a lull there has been quite a few service changes registered. A real mixture of event services and quite a few new updates for Cornwall. Unusually the Cornwall changes occur over several different dates, and some of these change on the 24th July which is a Wednesday

As usual click through on the library numbers for the full timetables / maps


  1. Worth noting the Wednesday date on 24th juluy is whn school hollidays start. sp probably to tie in any changes to that.

  2. Looks like Somerset Council has bought Taunton bus station and wants to reopen it:
    Meanwhile, Yeovil bus station's future is in doubt:

    1. It was bought by the District Council from First some years ago. When the Councils in Somerset were merged into the unitary council, it passed to the new Somerset Council. The plan to refurbish and reopen has been in the Somerset BSIP (over a year ago)

    2. Stagecoach bus app is horrible at the moment, wrong routes for 1a and 2, and a 54 which went to bovisand, but stated chichester when you tap it.

  3. Also SC timetables on BusTimes.org been wrong such as 85 missing whole section of route!
