Summer School Holiday Timetable Changes

We see a noticeable drop in the number of people using buses during the summer, as schools, colleges and Universities are on their break and most people take some time off work for a holiday.

To reflect this lower level of demand – which is a drop in bus use by 20% – we will again run ‘summer timetables’ during the main school holiday period, from Monday 31st July until Saturday 2nd September 2017.

Summer timetables apply only on the 17, 28, 43, 58 and 89, where we temporarily reduce the frequency from a bus every 7 or 8  minutes to a bus every 10 minutes instead. There are no changes to evening or Sunday buses and normal timetables start again from Monday 4th September 2017.
