New Bus Services for the Villages

It’s great news that NSC have arranged for three new bus services to be introduced to service the Blagdon and Churchill area. These services have been procured on an emergency three month basis, in order to allow the services to be launched while permanent contractual arrangements are put in place.

The launch of these services is great news for our villages, adding additional public transport options to support residents to make more sustainable travel choices while helping residents without access to cars to remain mobile.

Route 51 will operate on broadly a 2 hour frequency on a Mon-Fri basis, commencing Tuesday 6 April 2021. This service will be supported by a shorter journey for school pupils only between Churchill Academy and Winscombe (51s).

The service has been planned to connect with new local community feeder minibus services 991 (Langford-Wrington) and 992 (Langford-Blagdon) to give further journey opportunities, with discussions ongoing with another operator on how to further expand the offering for onward journeys at Langford.

Routes991 & 992 will operate on broadly a 2 hour frequency on a Mon-Fri basis, commencing Tuesday 6 April 2021. These services will be supported by a shorter journey for school pupils only between Churchill Academy and Winscombe (991s).  991s will provide a link from Winford & Felton as well as two journeys from Wrington into Churchill Academy.
