Travelling by bus is a great way to see the countryside and Somerset's towns and villages. It is also a good alternative to the car for work, shopping and leisure trips.

Buses

Langport is served by three main bus services:

Service 38 is a new service introduced on 2nd September 2013 by Webberbus which links Langport with Taunton, Street, Glastonbury and Wells. Whilst it is still possible to travel to Street, Wells and Glastonbury on First Bus 54 by changing at Somerton, Webberbus 38 now provides a direct hourly service during the day Monday to Saturday. For timetable information, please go to www.webberbus.com and look under “timetables” for “Taunton Timetables”. Bus 38, like Bus 54, picks up at the bus stop outside Kelways on the main road.

First Group BusesService 54 (operated by First Bus) links Langport with Taunton, Somerset and Yeovil (Taunton and Somerton on Sundays).
Connections are available at Taunton and Yeovil for a wide range of destinations and Somerton for First Bus Service 377 to Glastonbury, Street, Wells and Bristol.

Sunday buses on Service 54 to Somerton connect with Service 377 to Yeovil as well as Glastonbury, Street, Wells and Bristol. Service 54 runs approximately hourly during the daytime (Monday to Saturdays) and every 2 hours on Sundays.  There are also infrequent late evening services.
