On Thurs 11th May it was announced that WebberBus, who had taken over the local bus route just a few days before, had folded.

 

We understand that Somerset County Council have responded rapidly and have been working on providing a continuation of service. They have stated that First Bus (Buses of Somerset) will be reinstating the old 375 service. whilst permanent arrangements are being finalised and will provide additional capacity where necessary.

 

Arrangements have also been made for the Catcott School service to be taken over by another operator, Taunton Minibuses.

 

Hopefully it will all go fairly smoothly but there may be some disruption in the interim. We await any further developments.

 

IMPORTANT UPDATE: 24th May - Somerset County Council have today announced at very short notice that First Bus will be operating a new timetable from Wed. 25th May. The changes are significant.

 

More details can be found on Somerset County Council's news page - with the associated article providing a link to the new timetable.
