Round Bridport Bus~ Trial Extended U.F.N., Alternatives to be considered

Service 7 Round Bridport Bus Service Trial* operates on Wednesdays and Saturdays servicing the parishes of Allington, Bothenhampton, Bradpole & Bridport

local dignatories welcome the community bus
* Earlier this year and with financial support from Bradpole & Allington parishes Bridport Town Council extended the trial period with revised routes and timetables.

No 7 ROUTES from 6th March 2019

No 7 TIMETABLE from 6th March 2019

An Aug 2019 review demonstrated that whilst there had been a marginal increase in usage the then current levels remained below those expected. 
Alternative options are being considered during which time the existing service will be extended until the October half-term. (see below NOTE)


In Aug 2019 Bridport Town Clerk ,Will Austin, said: “We are disappointed at the take-up to date and want to see more people using the service to demonstrate a greater community benefit. We are also looking at other ways of running the service to show that we’re getting best value.  The trial period has been extended to mid-October for this work to be carried out.  There is strong support for the service amongst councillors and a recognition of its importance to regular passengers who might otherwise not be able to get to the town centre.”

NOTE 25/09: We are currently awaiting an update from Bridport Town Council regarding a possible further extension of the trial after the October Half Term break.

Bradpole Parish Council manages this website to enable readers to be kept up to date with developments and issues facing the Civil Parish of Bradpole, its Council, and its residents.

Do you know the difference between a Civil Parish and an Ecclesiastical Parish? Our Parish Council page will explain this in more detail.

Bradpole Parish Council represents the views of local people, negotiates and influences the decisions which directly affect the community and aims to improve the quality of life for everyone living and working in the area.

We maintain this community website as a relevant source of factual information by regular updating.


We realise that not all of our residents are able to access either this website or our social media platforms. We therefore produce a quarterly news sheet which is posted on the many notice boards around the parish.
