Changes to routes and times from Sunday 11 March 2018
We’re making improvements to your bus routes in Swindon
From Sunday 11th March we are making changes to some of our bus routes in Swindon, the changes are to improve reliability during weekdays. All of the new timetables will be available very soon via this web page (so check back in about a week for actual times), or you will be able to pick up printed copies from our travel shop from week commencing 26 February – but we will confirm online once they are back from the printers.
The changes are as follows:
Route 1 – the routes stays the same. Monday to Saturday evening times will be revised due to changes to routes 2 and 13/14.
Good news, there will be an earlier Saturday journey between town and Great Western Hospital to relieve the very busy first journey. Time will be added between Outlet Village and Link Centre on Monday to Saturday daytimes, to improve reliability for you.
Route 2 – the route stays the same. Monday to Saturday journeys have been retimed to reflect the changes to routes 1 and 13/14.
Route 5 – The route stays the same. Good news, there will be more buses on a Sunday as the frequency will be increased from every 20 minutes to every 15 minutes. There will also be an earlier Sunday morning service in both directions. Running times will also be increased at certain times throughout the week to keep the service reliable for you.
Route 11 – change to route: Taw Hill - Redhouse - Haydon Wick - Pinehurst - Town Centre - Middle Wichel
