Local buses under threat

Use it or lose it is the message from our local bus operator. The 58 and the 58A, which connect Wincanton to Yeovil in an hour-long trip via Henstridge, Stabridge and Sherborne, are under threat due to falling passenger numbers.

This is despite bus fares pegged at £2.00 per journey until december 2024.

(This applies to other bus services in Somerset, including cross country services to Bristol, Taunton and Bridport.)

The Somwerset Bus partnership have launched an advertising campaign which boasts it costs less than a latte to use the bus. Also less than using expensive fuel and running up parking charges!
