Delayed Service: 19th of July 2023

**UPDATE: The temporary traffic lights have now been removed. However, our A4 Air Decker service is likely to remain delayed until we are able to catch up with our scheduled timetable. 

Due to temporary traffic lights on the A38 (by the Airport tavern), our Air Decker service is currently running approximately 1 hour behind. We apologise for any inconvenience caused. 

Service Update: 13:00hrs departure Bath > Airport

Due to circumstances beyond our control, the 13:00hrs departure from Bath is unable to operate due to an incident on board. Therefore, the 13:00 hrs service will be starting at 13:30hrs from Unity Road (Keynsham). The next bus due to depart Bath will be the 14:00hrs departure from Dorchester Street. We apologise for any inconvenience. 

SERVICE DISRUPTION A38 Closure: 20th – 29th of July 2023

**UPDATE: Somerset Public Transport have just confirmed that the closure on the 21st of July at 19:00 till 06:00 on the 22nd of July will NOT be happening. Therefore, our service will be operating as normal from 06:00hrs. Road works are set to re-commence at 19:00hrs on Monday, 24th of July 2023. 

Dear customers,      

On the 20th – 29th of July (excluding weekends) inclusive, the A38 will be closed between Dundry Lane and the junction with Barrow S,  between 19:00 – 06:00hrs. As a result, the A4 Air Decker service will be diverted during this period in both directions, as we will be unable to serve any bus stops on the A38. This is likely to cause severe delays to our service and will add on an additional 35 – 45 minutes to each journey. Some departures will be subject to cancellation.     

Normal service/line of route will apply outside of these hours.  Normal service will also apply on Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd of July 2023.     

Diversion will be as follows:      

Normal route to Lime Kiln roundabout, where the service will divert along Colliters Way to the A370 till we reach Congresbury, we will then turn left onto Brinsea Road and continue until we reach the junction of the A38. We will then turn left onto the A38 and continue until we reach Bristol Airport. On leaving the Airport, the service will divert in reverse to the above.
