Bus services - subsidised by the council

We have been notified by the council that it is looking at the bus services it subsidises. - see below - for us there are two main buses - please let us know.

714 Weston - Bath Centre - Odd Down Daily: 2 late evening journeys from Weston and 3 late evening journeys from Odd Down
717 Weston - Bath Centre - Kingsway Mon-Sat: 5 journeys in each direction during the evening

In March 2009 a number of contracts for bus services supported by Bath and North East Somerset are due to expire. In advance of inviting tenders for replacement services, we are therefore inviting the views of Councillors, Parish and Town councils, operators, and other stakeholders affected by these services, before the contract specifications are finalised.

We need to submit any comments, proposals, or suggestions not later than the 19th September 2008, so that these can be incorporated into the contract specifications.

As a result of all these consultations the detail of the contracts to be let may differ from the tenders in operation at present. It is anticipated that formal invitations to tender will be sent out by the 3rd October, with contract awarded notifications in the first week of January 2009. Contracts will be let for periods of up to 5 years.
