Information from Wiltshire Council on Changes to Sunday & Public Holiday buses to Bath from Urchfont, The Lavingtons, Potterne, Devizes & Sells Green
from 30th April 2017

Buses on Sundays and Public Holidays from Urchfont, The Lavingtons, Potterne, Devizes and Sells Green to Bath
are currently operated by the “First” bus company as route 271, with funding from Wiltshire Council.
Unfortunately First have advised us that they no longer wish to continue with this arrangement and instead have
decided to operate a service between Melksham and Bath only, as a commercial venture without Council funding,
with effect from 30th April 2017.
 
Wiltshire Council has therefore arranged for another bus company called “Salisbury Reds” to provide a separate
service from the Urchfont and Devizes area, to connect with the “First” bus service at Melksham. The combined
timetable for both of these services is shown below and special fares will be charged to ensure that passengers do
not lose out financially by the need to change buses.

We hope that these new arrangements will not cause you too much inconvenience and if you require further information
about them, please contact Wiltshire Council’s Passenger Transport Unit on 01225 718080, or email
buses@wiltshire.gov.uk or write to The Passenger Transport Unit, Wiltshire Council, County Hall, Trowbridge. BA14 8JN.
