Service changes from Tuesday 19th April
1 month ago
As customers continue to return following the pandemic, we are starting to adjust services to reflect changing travel patterns and traffic congestion, plus increases in costs like national insurance and fuel. These changes are, for the most part, designed to be as minor as possible to minimise disruption and inconvenience.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, the Government have been providing funding to replace missing customer fares, this was reduced in September of last year and will be phased out by October. This means that we need to start making changes to allow us to continue to provide as comprehensive a service as possible whilst customers continue to return.
In all cases, the changes have been made to better reflect the current usage of the services and cause the least disruption possible. We hope that as people return to work 'onsite' and more people return to leisure activities, usage will increase.
From Tuesday 19th April, the following changes will be made:
