Bus Services in Bath

We are delighted that hot on the heels of our launch in Bristol, we launched services in Bath on Monday the 28th November 2022, and are currently running the following services:

Route 11: Bus Station – Bathampton

Route 12: Bus Station – Haycombe Cemetery

Route 20: University – Twerton

As with our Bristol services, due to the short timeframe for mobilisation we are running diesel buses to begin with, and will develop a plan over the next few months for the transition to zero emissions electric buses in the future, powered by renewable energy and owned by the community.

Tom Druitt, Founder and Chief Executive of The Big Lemon, said:

“The Big Lemon is passionate about providing an excellent passenger experience on all our buses and we’re excited to be coming to Bath. Our drivers in Brighton and Bristol have become famous for
their friendly and helpful service, and we look forward to bringing the same ethos to our new
services in Bath.”

Belinda Nicholls, Bristol Operations Manager for The Big Lemon, said:

“We are very excited to be expanding the operation into Bath, these are essential community routes and relied on by so many people, it is fantastic that we can have a positive impact on their day to day
lives. The feedback and comments that we have already received are heart-warming. We
cannot wait to get out on the road and meet our new passengers.”
