Planned bus service changes to routes operating within the West of England area from 7 April 2024.

Planned bus service changes dates

From January 2024, bus operators can only submit bus registration applications to the West of England Bus Registrations Authority to operate a new service, change or cancel an existing service*, twice a year – in line with the West of England Enhanced Partnership (EP)‘s requirements.

The agreed “effective from” change dates are approximately from the beginning of April and September, each year. This page will be updated with all planned service changes, ahead of effective dates.

*Please note cross-boundary applications (for services operating in and outside of the West of England area) are still required to submit bus registration applications to the Office of the Traffic Commissioner, and where these are not required to comply with the West of England EP requirements, they may still fall outside the agreed “effective from” change dates above.
