  • From Sunday 19 November, First Wessex will introduce revised timetables. Some routes will have their frequencies altered, while certain Sunday services will be temporarily removed. The bus operator is responding to the seasonal level of passenger demand, as well as congestion issues and withdrawal of subsidies, to ensure the long-term sustainability of these routes.
  • Historically, the local authorities provided financial support for service 4 and 8 in Weymouth for the winter, and for X51 (Dorchester to Bridport and Axminster) and X53 (Weymouth to Bridport and Axminster) all year. Due to the current challenging financial constraints, this is no longer the case. First Wessex has endeavoured to maintain the same level of service without any subsidies. However, whilst being able to keep the same timetable from Monday to Saturday on services 4, X51 and X53, when the majority of customers travel, the Sunday timetables will be withdrawn over the winter.
