The x34 timetable doesn't include the information that you can also use Faresaver's 67 service departing: Trowbridge Manver Street at 1800 which also goes to Rode (on request - drop off only), Beckington and Frome (ending in Frome Market Place). X34 tickets are accepted on this 67 service.


The x34 timetable is in operation from Monday 4 September.



 NEW D2 / D2X TIMETABLE FROM  3rd SEPTEMBER 


First Bus have published their new D2 / D2x timetable which starts from Sunday September 3. I

https://www.somersetbuspartnership.co.uk/d2 ( We have set up this link as some people can't access the First Bus timetable link below) 

https:www.firstbus.co.uk/sites/default/files/public/maps/D2_D2x--A4_Timetable_Bath_web%20%281%29.pdf

We fed back your feedback to First Bus on the current timetable and some of the improvements have been included in the new timetable. However, bus timetables are incredibly complicated as they interwork with other bus driver duties, bus driver breaks etc. So First Bus can’t accommodate all the improvements you wanted.


Please do let us know your thoughts on the new D2 / D2x bus timetable. We think it’s an improvement on the current timetable.


The best way of getting an even better bus service is by using it more!

FREE bus travel on the D2/D2x on the 1st June

 Travel for free on the D2 or D2x on the 1st June just hope on and ride. Try to take the D2x at busier times as it's a double decker so will have more seats. Hopefully all of the buses will be busier than usual and we can convert some car users to use the bus for good.
