Bus It’ – from Milverton and throughout Somerset – £2 fare per journey now extended until 30 June 2023.
Somerset County Council in conjunction with the Somerset Bus Partnership have extended the £2 per journey capped bus fare across Somerset. This will now run a further three months up until 30 June 2023. The good news is the ‘Bus it’ scheme includes the No. 25 service running through Milverton. This service runs from Dulverton via Wiveliscombe and Milverton and on to Taunton (and back). This will save passengers around 50% for a return journey into Taunton (or around two thirds saving one way). It’s a great initiative to make travelling more affordable in these challenging times as well as the climate positive of taking cars off the road. As mentioned, the ‘Bus it’ scheme covers most routes throughout Somerset so, for example, one could travel from Taunton to Minehead or Taunton to Glastonbury for just £2 each way.
The success of the ‘Bus It’ initiative will no doubt be measured by its uptake and will also help initiatives to seek improvements to the service to further increase usage.
