Route and Timetable changes

We’re making improvements to our services by increasing frequencies and reintroducing earlier and later times, including some evening journeys from Sunday 5 September 2021.

From this date some routes will also change to offer a better service and easier journeys for our customers. 

Details of the changes are listed below along with new timetables.  Services not listed will remain the same and follow their current timetables.

We will be updating the timetables at bus stops prior to the changes, meaning that between now and 4th September some timetables may show the new times instead of the current times. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.  In the meantime, please refer to our website and app for current timetables.
