Mar 2020 - New service 271/272/273 Bath - Melksham - Devizes

Following the decision made by First to cancel their D3 bus service between Melksham and Bath on 4th April we are making changes to our service which will fill some of the gaps. We are replacing the X72 service with 3 new services that will be operate along the following routes:

Route 271 will run from Bath through Bathford and Kingsdown to Atworth, Whitley, Melksham town centre, Melksham Forest and Bowerhill, every hour during the daytime on weekdays and Saturdays

Route 272 will run from Bath through Box to Atworth, Shaw, Melksham town centre, Bowerhill, Sells Green and Devizes every hour during the daytime on weekdays and Saturdays.

Route 273 will run from Bath through Box to Atworth, Whitley, Melksham town centre, Melksham Forest, Bowerhill, Sells Green and Devizes, during the evenings and all day on Sundays and public holidays.

Please note that these services will depart from Bay 9 in Bath Bus Station.

The timetable for these services is available to view on our website and will provide buses between Bowerhill, Melksham and Bath every 30 minutes on weekdays and Saturdays. It also provides an additional trip between Melksham and Devizes on the evening 273 service. The Sunday 273 timetable largely reflects the current D3 timetable but timings may have changed slightly so please check all times before travelling.

A new service 270 will operate between Devizes and Easterton which will provide connections with both the 272 to Melksham and Bath and the 33/x33 service to Calne and Chippenham. Details of this timetable will be published on our website shortly.

Copies of a printed timetable will be available to collect on our x72 service in the lead up to the change date but temporary copies will also be made available for collection from Melksham Tourist Information Centre, Melksham Library and Melksham Town Hall from Monday.
