BUSES from Stagecoach West will change their timetable in Swindon over Christmas.

The changes begin on Christmas Eve and normal service will resume on January 2 2020.

Buses will remain in service throughout the festive period with special or weekend timetables on some routes, with the exception of Christmas Day and New Year's Day, when there will be no service.

Managing director Rupert Cox said: "Being with loved ones is what Christmas is all about which is why we continue to serve the community throughout the festive period.

"The changes to the timetable mean that our customers can still spend time with their friends and family, or travel to work, knowing that they have a safe way to get home.”

All Swindon bus services will finish at 8pm on Christmas Eve.

Boxing day will see the number 7 and 9 buses running on their Sunday timetable, with special timetables for the 10, 55 and S6 routes.

Saturday December 28 and Sunday 29 will have the usual timetables for both days.

On New Year's Eve, the 1, 1A, 1C, 80 and 107 buses will run on a Monday to Friday timetable, the 1D and 85 will not run, and all other services will run on a Saturday timetable and finish early at 8pm.
