A BUS service between Warminster and Salisbury is set to change at the end of the month.

Bus provider, First West of England, has told Wiltshire Council that the D1 services will no longer run between Warminster and Salisbury from January 30, 2022.

This is a service which currently links Bath, Bradford-on-Avon, Trowbridge, Westbury, Warminster and Salisbury. The council is arranging for a different bus company to provide a service between Warminster and Salisbury – as well as the villages along the A36.

A timetable for the new service will be available from mid-January and will cater to the needs of students and commuters.

First West of England will continue to run the D1 bus every hour on a similar timetable, but the additional fast, peak-hour journeys numbered D1x that were introduced experimentally 18 months ago will no longer run from January 30, 2022.

Cabinet member for transport, Dr Mark McClelland said: “We know this particular route is important to people and having no service will adversely impact their daily lives.

“Therefore, we’re doing everything we can to get a new provider in quickly to fill that gap and ensure there is no disruption for people.”
