Expansion and investment on 103 bus route in Weston

Expansion and investment on 103 bus route in Weston

by Crosville Admin

Due to increasing patronage, the frequency of buses on Weston-super-Mare’s 103 route is set to increase from the beginning of 2016.

The service is run by Crosville Motor Services and operates from the Sainsbury’s store in Worle to the Asda store in Searle Crescent via Regent Street.

The independent, locally owned company is to introduce additional Super Low Floor buses to the route, allowing a 10-minute frequency between Asda and Regent Street during the daytime. The remainder of the 103 route will operate at the usual 20-minute frequency and the new timetable also offers an extended service during the evenings. This is in response to feedback from estate residents and increased loadings. Mr Jonathan Jones-Pratt, Crosville’s Managing Director, said “We’ve listened to our customers and have recognised the need to support our outlying housing estates so we’re planning to given them an even higher level of service.”

The company offers return saver tickets which allow cheaper travel both in the day and evening on many of its routes, including the 103 service.

Mr Jones-Pratt added “We want to thank all our passengers for their support of our local services. We are aware that timetable changes can be confusing in the short term but we are determined to reward loyal patronage by improving our bus services. You could say it’s our way of saying Happy New Year!”

New timetables will be printed shortly and will be displayed on bus stops and in our Travel Information centre on Alexandra Parade (opposite Tesco).
