Service Update- Duplicate bus added for peak periods from 23rd April 2021

Due to the re-opening of non-essential retail, and the easing of lockdown restrictions, we have seen a rise in passenger numbers and demand for our A4 service. This has resulted in buses during peak times reaching full capacity. 

From Friday 23rd April 2021, we will be operating a duplicate bus during these peak periods to ensure that the demand can be met whilst maintaining our social distancing standards.
