Leaving Melksham - National Express to London
Also - breaking news - National Express have just introduced a 33% off discount card for more mature and / or disabled people - see [here] which replaced the 50% off scheme that was government funded and ended last night (31st October 2011). With the new scheme, you do need to buy an annual card for an extra £10.00, but if you're a senior making several journeys a year it is probably worthwhile.
