We are so fortunate that the Isle of Wedmore Rural Transport Association, with the support of Somerset County Council, operates the Community Bus in Wedmore.
The service operates 4 days a week.
Anyone can use the bus and, providing you can show a valid Travelpass, you will travel free of charge. Seats should be pre-booked between 6.oo-6.30pm on the evening preceding the journey and, within limits, passengers can be picked up at a point convenient to their home – controllers will advise. All drivers are volunteers who have undergone training to become accredited to drive the bus. The regular services provided are:
Tuesday: Taunton. Leaves Wedmore at 9:30 am and returns at 2:45 pm. Book with Mrs Sellars on 712277.
Wednesday: Bridgwater. Leaves Wedmore at 9:30 am and returns at 2 pm. Book with Mrs Duckett on 712631.

When not required for regular services the bus is available for private hire, providing an accredited driver drives it. For more info please call Mrs Mewes on 712086.
The bus can take two wheelchair users.
