New bus timetable aims to build on 2017’s record year
A NEW bus timetable aims to further improve the service.
It comes into effect from 5 February and sees the night bus fare rise from £2 to £2.50.
Environment & Infrastructure president Barry Brehaut said the changes reflected the desire to improve provision for customers and maximise the network with existing resources.
‘With passenger numbers continuing to grow year-on-year, it is more important than ever that the network of bus services strives to meet this additional demand, particularly at peak times, while continuing to maintain a convenient, reliable and affordable service,’ he said.
‘Given the changes that are being implemented, the public are asked to review the new timetable and, in particular, any amended routes or timing differences to ensure that they are aware of what services will be operating from 5 February.’
The changes see the end of Route 22 and the introduction of the 13 and 62.
Buses will depart at consistent intervals from the terminus, while the night bus provision has also been enhanced.
Commuters have been targeted with increased capacity on the P2, 41, 51 and 62.
