Understandable reduction in frequency but let's hope that it doesn't encourage passengers who started to use the bus after the frequency increase, back to their cars.

CHANGES are being made to the timetables of Melksham’s bus and train services.

For bus users, the First D3 service from Melksham to Bath will be reduced from a half-hourly service to an hourly service during off-peak times. And there will also be some departure and running time alterations.

For train users, there will be changes to Melksham’s timetable, with ‘significant’ changes to some services.

It carries on ...
