Our service 1 links Weston-super-Mare with Knightstone Island, Birnbeck Pier, Kewstoke and Sand Bay. Throughout the summer we a fleet of half cabriolet buses operate on the service so you can enjoy the stunning views whilst being protected from the elements.
Unfortunately for the foreseeable future we are going to have to operate single deck buses on our service 20 Somerset's Coaster due to overhanging trees along the route not being cut back.
Whilst this is disappointing (as the views from the top deck are great) the safety of our customers and drivers is paramount and we also need to look after our vehicles.
The service will still take you to some of the great attractions along the route from the stunning beaches to the fun filled leisure park and The Grand Pier.
Our West of England Day ticket allows unlimited travel on Somerset's Coaster services and any service in the West of England zone. This includes places such as Bristol on our Service X1, Cheddar or the Strawberry Line on our Service 126.

Travel advice during Coronavirus
Things may have changed a bit since you last went on a bus, so here’s some key information you’ll need to know to keep you, your fellow passengers and our staff safe when travelling.
- You MUST wear a face covering (unless you meet the exemption criteria set by the government) and will not be allowed on the bus without one.
- We’ve introduced social distancing measures on board and therefore many of the seats have signs on them asking you not to sit there. Please make sure you keep a safe distance from others and only sit in a designated seat.
- Because of the social distancing measures we’re only able to carry about half the amount of passengers on a bus compared to before. So, if a bus doesn’t stop, even though it might not look full it could have reached its new capacity. We’re running as many buses as possible to try and ensure this doesn’t happen but please allow extra time for your journey if possible.
There are other things you can do to help keep yourself and everyone safe. To see the full advice please visit our coronavirus information page here.
