Thamesdown Transport has launched a revised 15/15A bus service, which links North Swindon and the town centre.
Officially launched by North Swindon MP Justin Tomlinson, the extended service will allow passengers to travel to and from North Swindon earlier in the morning and later at night.
There are services running every 20 minutes during the day on both the 15 and 15A routes, with an hourly late evening service running on the 15A until 11.10pm.
Passengers will also be able to travel into the town centre earlier in the morning, with a new 15A journey that will arrive at the bus station at 6.10am.
Taw Hill residents will benefit from a more convenient bus service as the 15A will now travel the full length of Queen Elizabeth Drive.
North Swindon MP Justin Tomlinson said, “I’m delighted that Thamesdown Transport are extending this vital bus service. As a Taw Hill resident myself, I know how important the route 15/15A is for so many local people.
“Bus services have been under pressure recently and I’ve always pushed for them to be retained, both as the local councillor for ten years and as the Member of Parliament. It’s good that Thamesdown Transport have heard this message and that this important service is being extended”
Managing director of Thamesdown Transport Paul Jenkins, pictured with Justin Tomlinson, commented: “September’s European Mobility Week (16 September) encouraged people across Europe to make smarter transport choices. Our revised 15/15A bus routes offer the most comprehensive coverage that the Priory Vale area has ever had and we hope that the new services will lead to many more local residents choosing to use public transport for travel around Swindon.”
