First Bus is cutting or revising more than a dozen bus services in Somerset from October 30th.
Services to Wells, Street and Minehead are being axed, with new timetables and reduced services on some other routes, to fill the gaps left by the cancellation of services.
Elsewhere, services in Taunton, Bridgwater, Chard, Yeovil and Burnham-on Sea will be changed.
First Bus says the changes are being introduced to "better match customer demand".
Alex Carter, managing director of First South West said: "A number of services in the buses of Somerset network are being revised to reflect changing demand patterns from our customers.
"Some are improvements, some are reductions, but overall a comprehensive network is maintained. The majority are provided on a commercial basis with no direct support from the local authorities"
Service 54 (Taunton — Langport — Somerton — Yeovil)
The timetable on service 54 is revised but continues to run hourly from Taunton to Yeovil via Curry Rivel, Langport and Somerton. Customers that previously used service 55 to travel from points between Henlade and Langport to Street, Glastonbury or Wells will be able to use service 54 to Somerton (Behind Berry stop towards Yeovil and The Square towards Taunton) where there is a connection with service 77 to or from Street, Glastonbury and Wells, although this is not guaranteed. The waiting time in Somerton is approximately 12 minutes in each direction.
Service 55 (Taunton — Langport — Somerton — Street — Wells)
Service 55 is withdrawn.
