• COVID-19 - Further reduction to bus services

    From Sunday 29th March 2020, we further reduced our bus services as part of our response to the fast-moving COVID-19 pandemic.

  • Additional journeys for key workers

    Key workers, we've listened to you! Following your feedback, from Sunday 5th April, further timetable changes were made to the 8/X8 Park&Ride Cressex Connect, 580 and 581 services.

Last updated: 06/04/2020

We are continuing to analyse our services and we further adjusted timetables on several routes from Sunday 29th March to match supply to the current demand and preserve the longevity of the Company. This means that we are providing a base-level service on most of our routes, allowing key workers and those who need to make essential journeys (such as to access essential supplies) to continue travelling.

Following feedback from key workers, further timetable changes were introduced from Sunday 5th April. Thank you to everyone who took their time to complete the online form and get in touch.

If any other key workers believe that our reduced timetables don't meet their needs, we are encouraging them to contact us with the details of the journey they are trying to make, and we will do our best to help. Further details are available below.

The situation in relation to COVID-19 is fast-moving and this may mean further changes. As soon as these are confirmed, we will communicate the information to our customers.
