Update, August 2020
It has been a very eventful year so far - no only with Coronavirus, but also with bus service changes on the Bath to Melksham and Devizes routes, where First ceased their services at the start of April, and Faresaver stepped in with Wiltshire Council support to provide evening and Sunday services in addition to their daytime buses, which have been rescheduled to provide continued service at a reasonable frequency to all stops on both routes.
All in all, a sensible outcome from the re-arragement earlier in the year, providing services that make sense for operator, council and (last an not least) current and future users. The community was very nervous prior to these changes, bearing in mind that past service re-arrangements have resulted in the loss of all evening buses to and from Trowbridge, and the loss of all but one buses a day to Calne and Marlborough.
