Concur with the 377 comments. My experience is that you get the Wells to Street traffic. A little bit south of Street but then it's mainly Somerton and Ilminster into Yeovil. As for long journeys, I did the full Weymouth to Taunton on the 31 about 25 years ago (though in reality, you always had to change in Axminster anyway). So a knackered VR from Weymouth to Axminster and then a change onto an Iveco Turbo Daily to Taunton!! I did the return on a pair of VRs and was sat at the front on the first one. A quite attractive girl got on and wearing a pair of shorts, so I snuck a couple of surreptitious glances as she sat across from me. On changing at Axminster, she got the big front seat. I went upstairs and went to sit elsewhere. She said "You can sit at the front - that way, you can keep looking at my legs!" Talk about busted!! She was actually really friendly (as well as obviously very confident) so we chatted all the way to Bridport (where sadly, she was off to meet her boyfriend). If only such long journeys were so interesting!!
