First Somerset & Avon

First Somerset & Avon

First Somerset & Avon is a company providing bus services in Bath and Somerset. It is part of the First Group.

The company combines the former operations of Badgerline (which joined First Bus in 1995) and the Somerset operations of Southern National, acquired by First Group in 1999. Badgerline had itself been formed from the southern area operations of the Bristol Omnibus Company in 1985 and privatised in 1986. Southern National was split off in 1983 from Western National (then part of the National Bus Company) and privatised in 1988.

In 2003 First Group changed the legal structure of some of its bus operating subsidiaries, and as a result, First Bristol Buses Ltd (the entity which had been Bristol Omnibus Company, a company originally incorporated in 1887) became First Somerset & Avon Ltd.
