Check in advance if you are travelling by bus over the festive period

Wiltshire Council is encouraging people that will be travelling by bus over the Christmas and New Year festive period to check the bus timetables before they travel.

Published 13 December 2023

Cllr Caroline Thomas, Cabinet Member for Transport said, "The local bus companies have informed us that their timetables will change over the Christmas and New Year holiday period. People can check bus times and plan their journeys in advance by visiting our Connecting Wiltshire website, or by accessing the bus companies' website or app. Alternatively people can call Traveline on 0871 200 22 33 (calls cost 12p per minute plus network extras)."
