Cuts are being made to Saturday bus services in Oldfield Park and across the city after a fall-off in demand. According to First, general travel patterns have changed over the past 12 months with fewer people travelling on Saturdays, but more on Sundays. Changes to a variety of buses serving Bath and surrounding areas are being made accordingly and will come into force from Sunday.
The 10 will run every 12 minutes, instead of every 10, the 6 and 7 will run every 30 minutes on both routes instead of every 20, and the X39 will run every 15 minutes between 10am and 5pm.
The firm says that during the week there has also been a slight reduction in the number of people using bus services during the morning and evening reflecting the fact that fewer people are travelling following rising unemployment.
