Bus service changes in West Wiltshire

August 6, 2014 4:55 PM

A number of First bus services, particularly affecting the Trowbridge Town Network, will change in the coming weeks.

Simon Ford, Commercial Manager for First West of England, says: "The changes to Trowbridge's town network are designed to ensure the long term viability of the bus service in the area. The new T1 will offer a good service connecting key parts of the town, and in combination with the existing Service 234 and 265, gives residents a way of getting around and about by bus.

"Elsewhere the addition of new Sunday and Public Holiday timetables on a number of routes will give more people the chance to travel by bus on these days. These developments are universally positive and we hope that people will find the increased access to buses on these days useful.
