#AYearOfBuses 198: Minehead – Dulverton


Here at Transport Designed, we love a quirky rural bus route – and today’s winner on #AYearOfBuses fits the bill perfectly.

Accessible travel charity Atwest recently stepped in to take over the 198, which was previously a ‘big bus’ route, but is now in the hands of Atwest’s fleet of accessible minibuses.

Three buses a day in each direction link the tiny Somerset town of Dulverton with Exford, Dunster and Minehead, taking a spectacular route through the Exmoor National Park. At the Minehead end of the route, it passes close to the the West Somerset Railway, between Dunster and Minehead, with the route down to Dulverton taking in the spectacularly beautiful landscape of moorland, woodland and rivers you’ll find within the National Park.
