Current Bus Service
Updated 5th June 2021.
At Buses of Somerset your safety and comfort on board are our priority. As the government restrictions ease you will notice that more people are travelling and coming together safely. This means that places and buses are busier than they have been; so once you board, you might find you have to sit next to someone. To help with the increased number of passengers we will be increasing the capacity on our buses, from Monday 17th May.
Are there any imminent timetable changes?
From Saturday 29th of May we made some changes to Quantock Line 28 between Taunton and Minehead. We will be adding additional journeys to cope with the expected increased demand. You can view the new timetable here.
A huge thank you to all our customers who have continued to use our services. Our staff have worked tirelessly to help you keep moving and you can be assured you can move confidently with Buses of Somerset.
We’re continuing to run as many buses as possible to ensure you can continue your day-to-day travel, subject to government travel guidance. Due to staff isolating there may be an occasion where short notice cancelations are unavoidable.
We’ve got each stage of your journey covered so that you can arrive safely at your destination:
Our drivers may not be wearing a face covering or mask while driving as this can be distracting, particularly for those who wear glasses, as there is a risk these get steamed up while driving. The cab has a protective screen to separate the driver and passengers. If a driver is required to leave their cab to assist a passenger, a face covering will be worn.
Our drivers will advise customers wherever possible but they cannot enforce social distaning measures. Please note the seating measures we have introduced are advisory for customers and we will not be asking our drivers to enforce them or leave their cab area, unless operating the manual bus ramp. Our driver will help advise customers when boarding where seats are available.
