A number of bus services in and around Bath and Wiltshire will change from the end of August as First adjusts some of its local services.

In addition, two further bus routes - both serving university campus' in Bath - will be altered from 21 September in preparation for students returning to the city. 

As part of the changes, the Trowbridge Town Network is changing. The latter has been redesigned to ensure that the bus services in the area remain commercially sustainable. 

Bus services operating on Sundays and Public Holidays between Bath, Bristol, Radstock and Midsomer Norton have also been reviewed. 

Simon Ford, Commercial Manager for First West of England, says: "We're making a number of changes to local buses from the end of August. 

"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."
