Wells Beach Bus

All aboard!

New for summer 2022, our Wells Beach Bus is here! Our bus service includes a fully electric bus and a 1951 Leyland Tiger.

The bus service will run daily throughout the summer until October. Every day, one of our buses will be running to take passengers from the football club car park in Wells town down to the beach. On the busiest days we will aim to run both buses.

See the FAQs below to find out more.

How much do tickets cost?
£2 for adults and £1 for under 16s.
We offer single fares only. These are payable by card.

Is there a timetable?
The service will remain flexible to accommodate demand and weather conditions, rather than following a set timetable.

Can I bring my dog?
Yes – both our electric bus and the vintage Leyland Tiger are dog-friendly. Please keep them on a lead.

Are the buses accessible for wheelchairs?
The electric bus lowers to kerb height with an access ramp. Unfortunately the Leyland Tiger does not have the ability to lower to kerb height.

Is the train still running?
No, the harbour railway which previously connected Wells town to Pinewoods was sold by the previous owners. We wanted to ensure that the replacement offered a better – and generally more sustainable – service.

Our electric bus, which is the main mode of transport, takes passengers from the town all the way to the roundabout at the end of Beach Road, meaning you will be dropped off even closer to the beach, Wells Beach Café and the toilets!

We know that the Wells Harbour Railway was a highlight for many locals and holiday-makers. Our 1951 open-top Leyland Tiger offers a unique, fun and memorable experience.

Where are the pick-up and drop-off points?
The bus stop in the town is at the football club car park, at the end of Beach Road and close to Wells quay.

The bus will take passengers to end of Beach Road, close to the public toilets and path to the beach. This is where you will be collected for the return to town, too.
