Bus service changes

Changes to Dorset's public transport services.

Bridport to Yeovil bus services agreed

We have been working with First Wessex, Yeovil College and local communities to keep running a bus service between Bridport and Yeovil.

Two new services are being introduced to replace the current service 40, which has run since Damory Coaches withdrew the route in July 2017.

First Wessex will operate commercial service 6 between Beaminster and Bridport Hospital, with one journey each way to and from Yeovil. The number 6 will run throughout the day between Monday and Friday. For people studying and working in Yeovil, we will provide additional links between Yeovil and Bridport or Beaminster, with 4 return trips a day linking with the First Wessex timetable.

Our service 40 will provide a journey between Bridport and Yeovil College via Broadwindsor and Mosterton starting at 7.30am from Monday to Friday. A return journey to Bridport will leave Yeovil at 5.15pm.

The service, which is being jointly funded by Yeovil College, will be in place until Thursday 28 March 2018. This will give us, the college and local communities 3 months to understand the level of demand for the service and develop longer-term transport solutions, which could be community-based.

We're also continuing to work with West Dorset communities to develop community transport solutions to fill in some of the gaps in the timetable for local villages in the area.

The timetable for Bridport to Yeovil services 6, 40 and 96 (pdf, 230kb) (opens in a new window) are available to view.
