Service Status Last Updated 05/08/2022  

We are currently running a school holiday service until Wednesday 31st August  2022.  

On all our services it’s now optional to wear a face covering again. However, we would recommend that you wear one when the bus is over 50% full. We would advise all vulnerable passengers to travel off peak (between 09:30 & 15:00) to avoid being on a crowded bus.  Please keep windows open to aid ventilation. Also please remember to give our staff and fellow passengers space and respect.

Thank you.
