Following a number of years of successful operation in the Bristol, Bath and South Gloucestershire areas, Wessex Bus has seen a contraction in services following reductions in contracts from both the public and private sectors.

We are therefore pleased to announce that a deal has been agreed with Cheltenham and Gloucester Omnibus Company Limited (owned by Stagecoach) who will be taking over most Wessex contracted routes from 2nd September 2018. The routes they will operate are as follows:

3’s – Aztec West
11/11A – Southmead
508 – Southmead
513/514 – Knowle
515 – Imperial Park
625 – UWE
TSB – Staff Shuttle

Further details about their future operation of these services and their timetables will be available at

From 2nd September, the following routes will be withdrawn as they will no longer be operated by Wessex or Stagecoach:
42 - Park & Ride, 12 - Bathampton, 51 - South Bristol Hospital.

The 10 service to Southmead Hospital will also be withdrawn as the local authority has decided it cannot provide the subsidy necessary to make this service viable.

The 20A/C service in Bath has been awarded to First Bus, who will commence operation on the route from 3rd September.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our customers for their support over the years.
