Somerset Council secures bus route following contract award

The agreement which followed a tendering process is with current operator South West Coaches and will offer a revised version of the service from 15 April. The operator had given notice recently after raising concerns about the financial viability of the service and a tendering process was started.

Somerset Council has made some changes to the route – the existing service had a number of variations from the main Yeovil to Shepton Mallet corridor which were carrying small numbers. The revised service focuses on a two-hour daytime frequency between the towns as well as a Saturday service which provides three journeys in each direction.

Connections are maintained for students at Castle Cary for onward travel to Strode College both am and pm, whilst entitled school children who were using some of the variations from the main route which will cease for education, will now be served through amendments to our school contract network.

All parents of entitled school children will be notified by Somerset Council in due course of their new travel arrangements.
