Bus strike in Somerset 21 November

The ongoing dispute between the RMT Union and First Group plc has led to another day of strike action. Many Somerset buses will not run on Monday 21 November.

We understand that buses coming from depots in Taunton, Yeovil, Bridgwater and Minehead will not be running.

Passenger groups are calling for RMT union and First group plc to hold talk to resolve this dispute. Everybody would like to see bus services return to normal. 

First Group tell us that Taunton Park & Ride will be the only registered bus services to operate a full timetable in Somerset. While no services can be guaranteed, they say they intend to run all private school and college buses that they operate. 

Beyond that, any available staff will be deployed to:

  • 21 Taunton service
  • 22 Taunton service
  • 51 service in Yeovil

If you intend to travel by bus, please go to First Group’s website to check if the service you want is running.
