Swindon’s Bus Company 11 (previously Thamesdown 11)

Thamesdown service 11 was the first bus service to serve East Wichel. The initial service was every 15 minutes during the daytime, continuing every 40 minutes until after 10 pm.
Evening services after 9 pm were withdrawn from 6 June 2011, following the removal of subsidies by Swindon Borough Council. Additional evening services on route 11 were added from 19 September 2011, but these were for North Swindon only.
The service was further reduced, to ½-hourly only during the daytime, from 7 January 2013.

Thamesdown service 11 was withdrawn between Fleming Way and East Wichel at the end of service on Saturday 31 August 2013. It was replaced by service 15 between those points on Monday 2 September, which also included the route of former service 15A in North Swindon. The rest of service 11 continued to operate in North Swindon.

A reorganisation of routes on 8 January 2017 saw service 11 reintroduced to East Wichel, on a similar route to before, but extended to Taw Hill on Sundays. Service 11 had a reduced half-hourly Monday to Friday daytime frequency in comparison to service 15 which it replaced in South Swindon, as a consequence of competition from the newly introduced Stagecoach service 9.

Service 11 was again reorganised by the now rebranded Swindon’s Bus Company on 11 March 2018 to run in conjunction with service 15 in North Swindon as a circular route through Redhouse and Taw Hill, with buses changing service number on route. This gave minor changes to times in East Wichel but more scope for delay owing to the more complex nature of the service.



Stagecoach 9

Stagecoach service 9 between Swindon and Wroughton was diverted through Wichelstowe from 6 November 2016, in order to serve the Waitrose store in Middle Wichel. It initially provided a service of four buses an hour each way during weekday daytimes, but this was reduced to three buses an hour each way during weekday daytimes from 1 January 2017. A few peak hour services ran to Thorney Park via Brimble Hill and Alexandra Park. In the evening the service decreases to hourly until 9 pm. An hourly Sunday service was introduced from 2 April 2017. From Sunday 2 September 2018 the service was extended through North Swindon via Penhill to the new development of Tadpole Village, replacing service 4 in North Swindon. At the same time early morning services were reduced and evening services increased. The services to Thorney Park were withdrawn, replaced by a service via Chiseldon, thereby severing the bus service link between Thorney Park and Wroughton.



Thamesdown 15

Replaced by service 11 from 8 January 2017

Thamesdown service 15 replaced service 11 in East Wichel from 2 September 2013. The service was 3 buses per hour Monday to Friday daytimes reducing to half-hourly in the evenings until 9 pm, and half-hourly on Saturdays, with no Sunday service.
The service was extended to Middle Wichel to serve the newly opened Waitrose store at the end of May 2015. At the same time, evening services were reduced in frequency to hourly, but extended until 11 pm. A half-hourly Sunday service was also added.

Thamesdown service 15 was withdrawn between Fleming Way and East Wichel at the end of service on Saturday 7 January 2017. It was replaced by service 11 between those points on Sunday 8 January, which also included the route of service 11 in North Swindon. An amended service 15 continued to operate in North Swindon.



Stagecoach 73

Service withdrawn from 3 September 2012

Stagecoach service 73 was an ‘experimental’ service from Swindon to Wroughton via East Wichel, introduced to provide a link between East Wichel and the facilities in Wroughton. Introduced on 3 April 2011, service 73 provided an hourly daytme service six days a week.
From 30 April 2012 the service was integrated with service 72, giving a more regular interval of buses between Swindon and Wroughton. The service was also extended to Swindon College.
Very few passengers travelled between East Wichel and Wroughton — the main use of the service was between East Wichel and Swindon Town centre, as it provided a quicker more direct alternative to service 11.

Stagecoach service 73 operated for the last time on Saturday 1 September 2012. From 3 September it was replaced by additional journeys on service 72 which ran directly along Croft Road and did not enter East Wichel. From 6 November 2016, Stagecoach amended their Wroughton service, by now renumbered, to run through Wichelstowe again, and detailed above.
