Burnham-on-Sea & Highbridge Town Council

4th May 2020 – 67 Bus Route Update

In more normal times the No 67 Bus Route travels between  Burnham and Highbridge, Wells, Wookey and numerous stops in between.

This service is provided on behalf of Somerset CC and is supported  and subsidised  by SCC and by local Parish Councils. It was created to help reduce the rural isolation experienced by residents following the withdrawal of the previous service bus.

It has been agreed that, as in the past our contribution to this service has been paid in arrears, our payments have now been brought up to date.

Due to the current situation, the route between Wookey and

Wedmore has been suspended and the Wedmore to Burnham

Service continues but on a reduced basis until further notice.

Previously, the Government stated that funds were to be made

available to support rural bus services. I hope that we may be able to access  some of that money as I feel that we are paying a disproportionate amount.  However, as the financial implications of the Corona Virus become clearer, that may just be wishful thinking.
