Some Bus Frequency Changes from Sunday 19 September

1 month ago Thu 16th Sep 2021

At the moment we have a shortage of bus drivers, which means we are unable to provide the frequency of services we would like to. This is because the logistics and transport industry across the UK is experiencing a shortage of drivers and has driver vacancy rates of up to 20%.

From Sunday 19 September, there will be some changes to our bus timetables. Many of our services will not change but we need to make some adjustments due to the challenges we are facing.

These changes mean that we should be able to run a reliable transport network for you, which is a better alternative than the current situation that is resulting in a number of cancelled journeys.

We have summarised the bus services which will run differently below. Any bus services not listed will not change and our trams will continue to run to their current timetable.
