Community Bus Trial ~ “Use It or Lose It”

Service 7 (Bridport Local) commenced on 22 August, and will operate on Wednesdays and Saturdays for a six-month trial* period across Bridport, West Bay, Bothenhampton, Lower Walditch, Bradpole and Allington.

First Wessex run the service under contract to Bridport Town Council, with a £2 single/£3 return fare.

Concessionary passes can be used but contributions towards the running cost may be made.

Whilst buses will stop at all First Wessex stops, they can also be hailed along the route.

The initiative has been championed by a working group of Bridport Town  Council, Bradpole and other parish councils, the Bridport Local Area Partnership and the Western Area Transport Action Group.

The inaugural no. 7 arrives at Jessopp Avenue

The trial will show whether or not the service can be sustained in the long run, and concessionary pass users are encouraged to help meet the cost. 

*The 6 month trial was initially set to finish in February 2019. An interim trial survey, covering the first two months of the trial, indicated that usage was below that expected. The possibility of some re-routing is being considered in response to passenger feedback.

LATEST NEWS:

In December 2018 Bridport Town Council agreed to extend the trial by 6 months to enable further assessments based upon some re-routing options, yet to be applied, saying that “passenger numbers need to improve but we are hopeful that these changes will help achieve that”

Bradpole Parish Council agreed to provide financial support for the 6 month trial period trial to Feb 2019. To enable councillors to conduct diligent enquiries into the future use of public funds for this project it has requested sight of the 3 monthly trial report (up until late November 2018).

If & when the re-routing is confirmed we will provide the updated timetable on this website. This is not expected to happen before the end of February.

“It’s very much a – use it or lose it service,”
