Welcome

WATAG (Western Area Transport Action Group) exists to improve public transport in the Westernmost part of Dorset. It is a forum for passengers, bus companies, council officials and local councillors. WATAG meets once every 2 months in Bridport. All are welcome.

We were unable to hold our bi-monthly public meetings this year, due to Covid-19, but hope to resume them at some stage next year. Meanwhile, we still plan to hold our Annual General Meeting in January 2021 and will give details on this website, and through the local media, in due course.
