Stagecoach are making changes to bus service 73 from 30 April. The service will now be part of the service 72 schedule, rather than a standalone service. In addition the bus will be extended and diverted in the town centre. Buses from East Wichel will call at Fleming Way stop C, the rail station, and Swindon College, before making their way to the bus station. Buses from Swindon town centre to East Wichel will follow the same route as now to East Wichel, but will be re-routed in Wroughton to follow the same route as service 72.
The changes will provide a more regular pattern of services between Wroughton and Swindon, and should increase the chance of the Stagecoach service to East Wichel having a long term future.
