Timetable Changes - from Christmas 2019

Summary of Changes

From Tuesday 24 December 2019, we are introducing some timetable changes which will involve: 

  • A 'Special Holiday' service with reduced daytime frequencies on weekdays and Saturdays over the festive period
  • Retiming last buses (after 2230)
  • Retiming early morning journeys (pre 0800) on service 22

Daytime frequency changes will be temporary over Christmas, whilst changes to last buses will remain in effect permanently into 2020. We are temporarily reducing services to a ‘Special Holiday’ level to reflect the lower number of passengers travelling, and to give our drivers some extra downtime over the festive period. In the New Year, new timetables (with usual daytime frequencies restored and last buses retimed) will begin.

Where possible, in these Special Holiday timetables, we have tried to make sure weekday morning journeys are the same as (or similar to) their usual times. Evening services (after 1900) are mostly the same, except for the retiming of last buses after 2230.

Full timetables will be available from mid-December online and in our Travel Centre.
