Transport affected by bad weather


We will update this page with the latest information regarding school and public transport during a period of bad weather. The documents in the Information and Resources section will be constantly updated with the status of each public transport service, and each school transport service in Somerset.

Please note that information on this page is as accurate possible, but in the event of bad weather the situation can change rapidly.

Public Transport
For details of the public transport routes that are operating currently please refer to the 'Weather affected routes - Public Transport' document in the Information and Resources section at the side of this page. This list will be updated each time we receive any new information from the Bus Operators.

For up to date information from individual bus operators please visit their company website using the links in the Related Services section.

For rail travel updates visit First Great Western website or the National Rail website.

School Transport
You can find details of whether a school is open, closed, or partially open on the Somerset Learning Platform (SLP) School Notifications page.

To find out whether a certain school transport route is running, on a restricted service, or cancelled, please refer to the 'Weather affected routes - School Transport' document in the Information and Resources section. Please note that we rely on the transport providers to give us information about weather affected routes and we will update the school transport document as soon as information becomes available to us. For further information on restricted services please contact the transport provider.

Health and Social Care Transport
In the event of severe weather conditions, all non-urgent Health and Social Care transport will be cancelled.  Every effort will be made to ensure that all urgent health transport (renal and oncology) goes ahead.
