<![CDATA[September Service Changes]]> http://wessexbus.com/news/SeptemberServiceChanges_507.html September Service Changes

11 and 11A – Following a review of the centre restructuring project we have decided to withdraw service 11A. Replacing it is our revised service 11, which will travel along Coronation Road instead of Cumberland Road and Spike Island. Service 11 will commence at the beginning of the University of the West of England term.

12 – Wessex Bus has been awarded the Bath & North East Somerset tender to between Bathampton and Bath Bus Station from Monday 5th September. This will be operated as an extension to service 12 which we already operate between central Bath and Haycombe Cemetery. This extension to the 12 gives new journey opportunities across Bath between Oldfield Park and Bath Abbey, Great Pulteney Street, Warminster Road and Bathampton.

16 – Working with the University of Bristol we have made some changes to our service 16. Due to the closure of Elton Road for vehicles travelling between Queen’s Avenue and Tyndall Avenue all vehicles will now travel via Elmdale Road, University Road and Woodland Road.

Journeys that continue to the city centre will follow the same route as before from Woodland Road. Those returning directly from the University to Stoke Bishop will turn left from University Road into Woodland Road towards Tyndalls Park Road. We are introducing a new timetable which can be found on our website.

17 and 18 – We’ve planned two great new routes to serve the University of Bath in the new academic year. The 17 and 18 are designed to make it easier for you to travel between uni and the places you need to be, when you need to be there! Services 17 and 18 replace last year’s U10, U18 and X18 routes.

42 – Wessex Bus has agreed to operate service 42 between Odd Down Park & Ride and the Royal United Hospital on a commercial basis, enabling B&NES to reduce their spending on tendered bus services. The service will operate on the same route that is currently operated by the existing operator and will operate Monday to Friday.

51 – We are delighted to play a part in maintaining this service, which provides essential links for the community. Working with Bristol City Council and the ward councillors we are providing a service which we believe will help restore trust in local public transport. The service will operate Monday to Sunday and will operate every 30 minutes during peak and every 15 minutes off peak.

84/86 – Services lost at tender to Stagecoach

501 and 502 – Following the introduction of a similar route we regret to inform you that Bristol City Council has withdrawn the funding to these services, which will no longer operate. Please see below for information about changes to the 508 route which will provide links between Dursley Road, Shirehampton, and Southmead Hospital.

508 – This route is being extended to operate between Dursley Road in Shirehampton and Southmead Hospital. Between Sea Mills and Arnside Road in Southmead it will continue to follow the existing route. The timetable is improved to operate hourly, Monday to Saturday.

The changes made to service 508 will replace some sections of the withdrawn 501 and 502.

620 – Services lost at tender to Stagecoach

622/625 – Services lost at tender to Stagecoach

901 – We regret that because of low passenger demand and the withdrawal of Bristol City Council funding, service 901 from Portway Park and Ride to Clifton will no longer operate after Saturday 3rd September. Passengers wishing to travel to Clifton Village by Park & Ride are able to use service 505 from Long Ashton Park & Ride.
