Potential Delays – 13/07/19

Bath Carnival is taking place Saturday 13th July.

This will not affect the A4 route, however there is the potential for slight delays when the buses are in the centre of Bath during the carnival procession.

This shouldn’t impact journey times too much but we still recommend passengers allow extra time for their travels.
