Buses of Somerset are re-introducing double deck vehicles on Service 21 from Monday 15 June. This is due to the need to provide additional capacity, as a response to social distancing measures.
The SCC Highways Team is in the process of cutting back trees along Milton Hill to enable Buses of Somerset to safely operate double deck vehicles. Until this work is completed, the service will need to divert around Milton Hill, as it is not currently safe and could cause damage to the larger vehicles.
SCC operate Service 12, which provides a link to Taunton and serves Milton Hill. While the tree work is being undertaken, residents who live on Milton Hill will still be able to access a regular bus service. We are hoping that the disruption will be minimal, with the 21 reverting to its normal route as soon as it is able.
A timetable for Service 12 is available here: Service 12
