Thamesdown bus services across Swindon will be running on modified timetables over the Easter holiday weekend.
On Good Friday, 25 March, a Saturday service will be in operation between 8.00am and 6.00pm on Services 1, 1A, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 17, 18 and 19. There will be a special service on Service 16, serving the Great Western Hospital, and Service 22. All other services are suspended for Good Friday only.
On Saturday 26 March and Sunday 27 March, all services will be operating as normal.
On Easter Monday, 28 March, Sunday timetables will apply.
Paul Jenkins, managing director of Thamesdown, said: “The Easter weekend is the perfect time to leave the car at home and try the bus instead, particularly for visiting the cinema, shopping in the town centre or getting out for a walk at one of our many parks in Swindon.
“By using great value tickets such as our Family for a Fiver, everyone can travel easily on the bus around the town and not have to worry about getting stuck in traffic jams or finding parking spaces.”
The Family for a Fiver ticket allows one day’s unlimited travel across the Swindon urban area for up to two adults and three children, for the reduced holiday and weekend price of £5. Tickets can be bought on the bus from the driver and will be available all through the school Easter holiday as well as over the Easter weekend.
The Thamesdown Travel Shop in Fleming Way will be closed on Good Friday and Bank Holiday Monday. The customer helpline will also be closed over the Bank Holiday weekend.
