Further Reductions to Bus Services

1 month ago Wed 1st Apr 2020

During this unprecedented time, our teams have been trying their very best to keep services running and as reliable as possible for those who are travelling for essential reasons.

As you know, we needed to reduce some of our bus frequencies so that we could best manage our resource and unfortunately, we now need to reduce some services even further to ensure that we are able to continue providing a service for people who need to travel at this time. These changes will come into effect on Sunday 05 April.

From this date and until further notice, we will also be introducing a 'flat fare' on all of our bus services regardless of where you travel to or from. The fare will be £1.50 and will be in place from the start of service on Sunday 05 April. You can read our article for more information on this fare change.

Positively, people are following government guidance and staying at home, only travelling when It is vital to do so. This, however, means a large reduction in the number of people travelling on board our services and when coupled with lower staffing levels during this time, means that we need to reduce our bus services to essential journeys only.

Please rest assured that no individual services will be removed, and routes will not be shortened so that we can continue to provide travel for those who need it. We have added a short summary of the frequencies and first and last buses Monday to Saturday to the table below. Sundays will operate a different service and you can see all of the timetables for Sundays, via our Routes and Maps section.

Service 19 60 mins 09:55 10:25 17:55 17:25

The last thing that we want to do is inconvenience those whose need to travel is essential and we will continue to work hard so that we can ensure that vital frontline workers can still use public transport.
