Bath - Melksham - Devizes. Bus route changes, new timetable

Bus service (route and timetable) between Bath and Melksham

Update - August 2010 As from 5th September 2010, there are major changes to the buses from Bath to Melksham, Devizes and beyond. See [here] for new route diagram and times.

Update - June 2010 - [Current timetable]




Bus routes have changed recently. The former First routes X71 and X72 have been replaced by the 271, 272 and 273. Faresaver also run a service, which is their route 272.

If you're wondering why the service numbers have changed ... it's because the route has altered beyond Devizes. Until recently, the buses continued on past Devizes via Potterne, West Lavington, Market Lavington and Easterton where they terminates and turned around apart from a very few which carried on and turned around at Urchfont. I understand that there were safety concerns about the turning point at Easterton, so the buses now travel alternately from Devizes via Urchfont and via Potterne to Easterton, allowing them to carry on through that village (as the route comes in at opposite ends) without having to turn around. Buses running via Potterne are route 272, and via Urchfont are route 273.

Route 271 runs from Bath to Devizes, and takes a different route in Melksham, serving Queensway and Melksham Forest rather that Well House Manor and Spa Road.

Buses via Whitley do not bear a different number - you just have to know which buses they are if you want to go there!
