If bus travel is good enough for the royal family it's good enough for anyone

Definition of the word OMNIBUS
The adjective "omnibus" may not have much to do with public transportation, but the noun "omnibus" certainly does - it not only means "bus,"but it's also the word English speakers shortened to form "bus." ... But in Latin, "omnibus" simply means "FOR ALL."

Surveying on the evening 267 bus

Frome and villages bus users group have been surveying on the 267 bus from 2000 up until 2310. We have travelled on all 4 of the 267 buses between Frome and Bath currently funded by Bath and North East Council.  We were  have  surveyed  the Monday to Thursday service as First bus have said that they can run the Friday and Saturday service without funding. We later decided to survey the Friday and Saturday services as well so that we have a complete weeks worth of data.

We would like to thank all of the bus users who have been surveyed for their help especially those who we have seen more than once.

The evening midweek 267 allows recently engaged couple, Bath-based Laura and Frome’s Adrian, to see each other and do whatever young couples in love get up to.

During the day these two both are working very hard to save for the day they’ll walk down the aisle together. So they rely on the evening 267 to bring them together....

Cuts to the 267 evening buses in September would mean they wouldn’t be able to see each other. Trains aren’t an option as the railway stations are simply too far to walk, most especially late at night. Taxis aren’t an option either .. totally unaffordable.

So cuts to the evening midweek 267 would end night time trysts for Laura and Adrian.
