Changes to services from 17 April

News   •   Apr 01, 2016 13:44 BST

There are a number of service changes taking place from Sunday 17 April, mainly to improve the reliability of our services.

Our new timetables have been based on the information from the real time systems that are fitted on each bus, and this has allowed us to reflect the time it is taking to cope with traffic delays throughout the day. We've looked through the data from each route so that we can create timetables that will make our services more reliable for you, our customers.
