Weekend service increases from Saturday 4 July

From Saturday 4 July, we’ll be increasing our weekend services, whilst also maintaining the early morning key worker journeys we’ve been running, to help support the opening of more shops, pubs and some leisure businesses.

Weekday journeys will remain as they are now, with buses running to timetables that are similar to their pre-coronavirus times following changes on 1 June.

Evening frequencies on services will remain reduced for now, as not all businesses will be open, but we’ll continue to monitor demand and look to reintroduce journeys when it increases.

You can view all the timetables in our timetables and maps section – simply select your service and change the calendar to your desired date.

To help you travel safely on our buses, you can use our new how many seats are left on my bus website feature if you're looking to travel now, or if you're planning ahead you can use our When2Travel prediction engine to see how quiet your bus is going to be.

For the latest information and guidance, view our coronavirus updates page.
