Service Changes June 2024

Sun 2nd Jun onwards

We will be making several improvements to the Carousel Buses network from 2nd June 2024, with more buses between High Wycombe, Amersham, Chesham, Slough, Uxbridge and Heathrow Airport, as well as enhanced links to Booker and Lane End.
the one

In partnership with Buckinghamshire Council, the one will be doubled in frequency on Sundays to operate up to every 30 minutes to Chesham. For the first time, there will be a Sunday service on Stanley Hill and Woodside Road. Journeys will better match the Monday to Saturday pattern, with buses to Hemel Hempstead operating as service 1 and buses to Pond Park operating as service 1A. We'll be operating earlier and later trips to provide better connectivity throughout the day.

Some Monday to Saturday running times will change to improve reliability. We will also be introducing a new later journey at 2230 from High Wycombe to Hazlemere and Holmer Green.

The first of our new the one branded Mercedes-Benz buses have hit the road and more of these will soon follow, featuring USB power and ambient lighting to make your journeys more comfortable.

41 41S

We will be making some changes to the timetable to improve punctuality. New school day variant 41S will replace the 180 journey via Little Kingshill and Hyde Heath to Dr Challoner's High School in Little Chalfont.

Flightline 102

In partnership with Heathrow Airport, service 102 will be relaunched as Flightline 102. Our smart, refurbished, green double deck buses featuring free WiFi, USB charging ports, next stop audio visual announcements and luggage racks will be landing over the coming months.

It gets even better! From 2nd June 2024, buses will now operate up to every 30 minutes between High Wycombe, Beaconsfield, Gerrards Cross, Uxbridge and Heathrow Airport, Monday to Sunday daytime. As a result of this enhanced timetable, there is no longer a need for the 101 variant to operate.

103 X103

There will be minor changes to the running times to improve punctuality. We will also be operating new late evening journeys following requests from our customers.

Additionally, from 9th June 2024, we are excited to introduce a new Sunday service between High Wycombe and Slough. This will operate as new service X103, following the same route as service 103, except for operating via Beaconsfield Old Town and the A40 instead of New Town and Wilton Park.

104

There will be minor timetable changes to improve punctuality and maintain the spacing of journeys between High Wycombe and Beaconsfield with services 102 and 103.

106 107

We have reviewed the punctuality of these services, particularly at school times, and will be making some changes to operate more reliably and ensure scholar connections are maintained.

180

Service 180 will be withdrawn and replaced in part with new service 41S. Please see above for details.

275

In light of continuing challenges to operate a reliable service due the variability of traffic conditions, we have worked with Oxfordshire County Council to devise a revised timetable for service 275 from 2nd June. This new timetable will continue to serve High Wycombe on the first trip towards Oxford and final trip of the day leaving Oxford. Through the middle of the day, buses will now run between Oxford City Centre and Red Kite Road in Chinnor.

During the day, travel between High Wycombe and Oxford can be made using service 4 to the Coachway Park & Ride and connecting with the airline to Oxford. Coaches on the airline operate up to every 20 minutes, 7 days a week.

We will be making some amendments to the timetable in order to improve punctuality, in the face of changing road traffic conditions.
