The TransWilts Community Intergrated Transport Corridor



Here's a vision for the future. Marketing, intertickets, and connections between buses and trains along the TransWilts corridor. Using buses for the shorter journeys and to link some of the smaller communities, together with trains to provide the travel between main towns and hubs. Most of these bus services are already running; additional train services are planned from December 2018. Other feeder bus and rail routes can connect in too - Malmesbury, Corsham, Bath, Bradford-on-Avon, Devizes, Frome, Amesbury, Stonehenge, Town services. And should stations re-open at Royal Wootton Bassett and / or Wilton the model can be adjusted.

Number of lines indicates hourly frequency planned, Monday to Saturday daytime from 2018. Sunday service may be limited to trains, and 1 bus per hour from Swindon to Chippenham. First blue figure is minutes by train, second is minutes by bus. Coloured numbers are bus service numbers.
