Link up with someone and share a car to Bath or Bristol

For the whole of August trains from Frome to Bath Spa will be replaced with buses as the line is upgraded and electrified.

In response a lift share evening is taking place at 7.00pm at the Three Swans pub on King Street on Wednesday 29th July to link people up who drive or get the train to Bath or Bristol regularly.

Anna Francis, Frome Town Council’s energy and recycling officer said, “We know that over 1,500 people drive out of Frome to Bath and Bristol every day. Enabling people to link up and share lifts is a great way to cut journey costs, congestion and carbon, so do pop along if you can.”

As well as the face to face link up there is also a Somerset Liftshare website and app so if you can’t make the event you can sign up for free at: somerset

The rail replacement service is part of a £7.5billion electrification programme which has now reached the First Great Western Line at Bath Spa, allowing faster, more efficient trains. This may also free up more diesel carriages for Frome. A full timetable of the changes is available here: www.first
