Connect2Wiltshire is a demand responsive transport network in southern Wiltshire operating in many places including Calne, Kennet Valley, Mere, the Vale of Pewsey, Wootton Bassett, Malmesbury and the Woodford & Wylye Valleys.[1]

It is an upgraded network combining Wigglybus and other share taxi networks under one brand.[2] Unlike many bus services, all passengers have to book at least one hour before travelling. It operates standard taxi services also. Unlike standard taxis these are charged at bus rates.[3]

The name was chosen because the council required a new licence to use the name Wigglybus.[4]
