Places served by buses to and from Taunton. Note that not all of these are regular daily services. Column 1 gives the company name and service number, column 2 lists places served by that bus, column 3 gives details of whether the service allows for arrival in Taunton before 9am and departure after 5pm to allow for travel to work/school or college and column 4 gives information about the regularity and frequency of the service. SOMERSET COLLEGE is now BRIDGWATER COLLEGE but remains as SOMERSET COLLEGE on the majority, if not all, timetables.

 

The new bus timetable (from 4th February 2018) is much larger than before and now includes buses for other areas such as Bridgwater, Yeovil, Minehead, Wells, Sherborne, Wincanton, Street, Burnham on Sea, Weston Super Mare and Porlock. These are not included in this table. Local bus service 2 has a completely altered route and now serves Monkton Heathfield thus providing a service to the Tacchi Morris Centre ands has been renumbered as 2 and 2a. Park and Ride no longer operates at weekends and there are very few buses after 7pm or on Sundays.
