Timetable variations

Due to many schools having reduced numbers of students, there will be some changes to school routes and some minor changes to the 2, R14, 44 & X7 as below

2 - The bus at 1552 from South Wilts Grammar School will start from the City Centre at 1605 and follow the School Holiday times.

R14 - The bus at 1605 from Laverstock Schools will start from City Centre instead (as per School Holidays).

44 - The bus at 1447 from Morgans Vale Corner will continue beyond Downton to Salisbury arriving at 1538

X7 - Will transfer to School Holiday timetables so the 0640 journey from Salisbury will continue to Southampton and there will be an extra bus at 1510 from Southampton. However the bus from West Wellow will remain on the schooldays time of 0728 and continue to South Wilts Grammar School
