It has been brought to our attention that some passengers have been informed by their driver that the number 4 bus service is being withdrawn from 1 September.
Our chairman has spoken to Andy Strong, from the Bath & Northeast Somerset Council public transport team, and he has confirmed that the number 4 will no longer run to Bathampton. He went on to say that it will be replaced by a daytime service to the bus station provided by Wessex running every 40 minutes.
He confirmed that pensioner passes will still be accepted, but not First passes. Passengers will instead have to buy the Bath Rider pass if they want to use non Wessex services for their onward journey or Wessex passes.
To avoid confusion about the current service, there will not be any official communication until August, we have asked Mr Strong to provide content for the August Parish newsletter.
