Fare Changes from 25th September 2022

From 25th September, Bath Bus Company will introduce new fares on the A4 Air Decker service.

Local journey fares will fall in line with other operators across the West of England, such as First Group, as a result of the BSIP (Bus Service Improvement Plan), to encourage more people to use public transport. 

Adult single local fares in the Bath and Bristol zones will be reduced to just £2.00 with journeys across both zones costing a maximum of £3.70.

You can still make a saving if travelling regularly between Bath City Centre and Highridge Common by purchasing a 10 journey ticket. These will now cost £30.00 and are valid for up to 3 months. 

An increase of 50p on all airport single journeys and £1.00 on airport returns will apply.

Diversion – Upper Bristol Road Closed on 21st and 22nd September 2022.

Road works are taking place on Upper Bristol Road on 21st and 22nd September inclusive. As a result the A4 Air Decker will be diverted in both directions as follows:

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

We are deeply saddened by the announcement that Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has passed away. An inspiration to so many, she dedicated her life to her family, country, the Commonwealth and her people. Her passing is a great loss to all. Our thoughts and sympathies are with His Majesty King Charles III and the Royal Family at this time”

Urgent Service Update – 9th August 2022

Following a review, we have made the decision to revert back to our normal route as of today (09/08/2022) and will be servicing Anton Bantock Way, Queens Head Road and Highridge Common as normal. We will no longer be operating via the diversion. For any queries, please feel free to contact us.
