Since the previous bus routes were cancelled a couple of years ago Bob Filmer has been working with the County Council to get a bus route back through Brent Knoll, East Brent and the communities between Burnham & Cheddar that were left with no service at all.
It’s fantastic that we now have a service between Burnham and Cheddar.
Initially it will run on a Tuesday and Friday between approx. 9.30am and 2.30pm utilising the time between an existing minibus (education) service. Usage will be monitored, and if it proves popular, it is hoped to extend the service.
The route of the bus will be from Pier Street Burnham to Tweentown Cheddar via Queens Drive, Edithmead Roundabout, Brent Street, Burton Row, East Brent Village Hall, Rooksbridge Garage, Tarnock Garage, Lamb Inn Weare, Old Coach Road, White Hart Cross, Axbridge Square, Cheddar Woods and then Tweentown Cheddar and will then return the same route.
There will be 3 journeys per day in either direction and timetables will soon be available.
Bob said, "I am so pleased that we have been able to get the County Council to support the reintroduction of this Burnham to Cheddar service and hopefully, with support, it will grow into a more comprehensive one going forward. It will help those who do not have their own transport and also allow others to use the bus rather than the car and thereby help the climate too."
Those with Concessionary bus passes will be able to use them, for more info about bus passes please visit :-
