Somerset County Council has been unable to confirm whether weekend services will return to the Taunton park and ride, despite popular support for the service.
The council intended to shut it from the Gateway and Silk Mills sites as part of a programme of cuts approved in September to save £14m by 2020.
The service was given a 12-month reprieve after Taunton Deane Borough Council agreed to provide a further year’s funding.
But the county council has not been able to state definitively whether weekend services would be restored – or whether extra services would be put on in the run-up to Christmas.
Negotiations are currently under way between the two councils and First Bus with a view to providing a commercially viable service, after the Taunton Deane funding runs out in September 2019.
