BUSES TO BATH FROM FROME BEGINNING 1/9/2019.

The First Bus D2 bus’s timetable is changed from today with the aim of improving its punctuality – you have probably seen the D2 buses around, it is a distinctive yellow and brown. This runs from around 6am to 6pm Monday to Saturday (starting around 7am on Saturday) and also a Sunday service from Frome Sainsbury’s to Bath.

There are two different routes around Frome via Clink and via Critchill. To make these clearer for customers, buses will now operate as the service D2 going via Clink in a clockwise direction and D2A via Critchill in an anti-clockwise direction (see map in the picture below). So make sure you look out for the number on the front of the bus!
