Changes to D1X bus service to Bath

The 0805 D1X bus service from Manor Farm/The Rising Sun will be running 1/2 hour earlier at 0734. from the 6th of September.   This is to suit its service as a schools transport bus and so will have to fit in with the school timings. There will also be a D1X running at the same times (approx). This will ONLY be available to school / college students travelling on a school / college pass.  The next bus through North Bradley will be at 1020 and will be two buses as it has to cater for the college students of which they expect a big increase.
