<![CDATA[University of Bath service withdrawal]]> http://wessexbus.com/news/UniversityofBathservicewithdrawal_616.html We regret to inform our passengers, that from Friday 22nd September Wessex Bus has decided to withdraw all commercially operated bus services from the University. The decision to withdraw from the University during the 2017/18 academic year was purely a commercial decision, declining passenger numbers and increased pressure from our competitor were contributing factors. Wessex will continue to operate the UoB service between the University and Lower Oldfield Park until this date. The service 20A and 20C will continue to operate to the university under contract to Bath and North East Somerset.

Should passengers have purchased a pass that expires after this date, customers will be entitled to a refund calculated on a pro rata basis and should do so by contacting Wessex Bus directly. Wessex have advised that passengers must provide their receipt of purchase a when applying for a refund. 

Wessex would like to thank its customers for choosing to travel with Wessex Bus and the university for its support over the past 7 years.

<![CDATA[Service 90 Withdrawal ]]> http://wessexbus.com/news/Service90Withdrawal_607.html  

We have tried to bring in competing services to new areas within the Bristol area, in doing so we have put together special offers and ticket prices far below our competition.

In the case of the 90 we have watched the service change over the last couple of years, this has seen a big re-launch in October 2015  and then over the last 12 months the new vehicles introduced have been removed and the frequency of services reduce.

We registered our services to help fill the gaps of the frequency reductions and to introduce lower fares to the area, however within one week our competitor decided they could increase the frequency on the service and as a result flooded the service with buses. In addition to this, since our service 90 has been introduced several of our drivers have been victims of verbal and physical abuse.

In response to the fierce competition from our competitor and continuing daily driver abuse we will remove our service 90 from 22nd July.

We would like to thank those who travelled with us and supported our service 90 during the short time of operation.

<![CDATA[University of Bath Service Changes July 2017]]> http://wessexbus.com/news/UniversityofBathServiceChangesJuly2017_606.html We regret to inform our passengers that the service 17 will be withdrawn from Monday 17th July 2017. Due to increased competition from our competitor and operational issues along the route we have made the decision to cease operating this service.

We have however introduced a new service, the UoB will operate between University of Bath to Lower Oldfield Park via the City Centre. The service will operate every 20 minutes Monday to Saturday and every 30 minutes on Sundays.

Decisions to withdraw services are never easy and many months of analysing data have been undertaken prior to any decision being made. We hope the UoB will provide that essential link between the University of Bath and Lower Oldfield Park.

We would like to thank our customers for choosing to travel with Wessex.
