Customer Advice
First Bus route D1: Bath (Bus Station) - Bradford on Avon - Trowbridge - Westbury - Warminster - Salisbury, First Bus route D2: Bath (Bus Station) - Frome (Market Place), First Bus route D3: Bath (Bus Station Bay 14) - Melksham and First Bus route 178: Bristol (Temple Gate) - Keynsham (Post Office) are conveying passengers via any reasonable route until further notice.

CrossCountry and South Western Railway are conveying passengers via any reasonable route until further notice.

First Bus route D3 ceased operation on 4th April 2020.  Someone tell (First) Great Western?  Are tickets valid on Faresaver routes 271, 272 and 273 at such times, as the replacements for the D3?

From Monday 22nd June Frome Marketplace will be shut for roadworks for up to 16 weeks.

D2 Buses will not serve the marketplace bus stops, instead stopping at a stop on Cork Street.
