TAUNTON Bus Station is set to close tomorrow after 67 years of serving the town.

It was announced earlier this month that the town centre station would be closing, with stops scattered around the former site.

Buses of Somerset stated rising costs meant the venue was 'totally uneconomic', and that the building was out-of-date.

A spokesman said at the time: "It’s served Taunton well over the years but, unfortunately, the rising costs of even day-to-day maintenance has made it totally uneconomic, let alone the heavy investment that would be needed to bring it up-to-date and fit-for purpose for the future.

"Buses that used the bus station will leave from the bus stops in the town centre."

Services are set to relocate from tomorrow (Saturday, March 28).

The 21/21A, 22/22A and 28 services will depart from Castle Way, (Stop G).

Services 29, 30, 54 and 99 will depart from Clinton's Cards, (Stop I), and the 25 service will depart from Fat Face (Stop H).

Service PR1 will no longer call at Castle Way.

There are no other changes to stopping arrangements for any of our other services.

Towards Musgrove Park and Silk Mills, buses will depart from the Market House (Stop K), while Towards Gateway Buses will depart from Corporation Street (Stop L).

In a Facebook post, a spokesperson for Buses of Somerset said: "A sombre day in Taunton today as we mark the final day of operation from Taunton Station.

"Having been the main transport hub in the town for 67years, services will move to nearby stops from tomorrow.

"Farewell old friend - you may stand down."
