Great news... from 22 April we are introducing a new service between Sand Bay and Weston-super-Mare to our Somerset's Coaster family.
Our great new service links Weston-super-Mare with Knightstone Island, Birnbeck Pier, Kewstoke and Sand Bay. Throughout the summer we are also introducing a fleet of half cabriolet buses to the service so you can enjoy the stunning views whilst being protected from the elements.
Service 1 runs hourly, seven days a week and the frequency increases to every 30 minutes during the summer season (from the 27 May to 1 September 2018).
Whether you're taking a stroll along the beach at Burnham-on-Sea, enjoying fun-packed rides at Brean Theme Park or enjoying an ice cream on The Grand Pier in Weston our Service 20, Somerset's Coaster will take you there.
Rainy day? Not to worry. Our buses are half cabriolet so you can enjoy the stunning views whilst being protected from the elements or catch one of our standard double decker buses also used on the route.
Service 20 runs up to every 30 minutes throughout the day Monday to Saturday and hourly every Sunday during the summer season (Easter to October half term). The service also operates a reduced frequency in the winter season.
Our Weston-super-Mare Outer Zone Day ticket allows unlimited travel on Somerset's Coaster services and any service in Weston-super-Mare Inner & Outer Zones. This includes places such as Cheddar on our Service 126, Clevedon on our X5 or X6 and Wraxall to visit Noah's Ark Zoo Farm on also our Service X6.
