Local Bus Journeys 25th March 2020
As a result of the COVID-19 situation, our bus companies are facing a very difficult situation as passenger numbers fall drastically alongside staffing issues and of course only key workers travelling. In response, bus companies are planning to reduce their services, inevitably with less than the usual notice period. They are doing this in discussion with the County Council and we are supporting them in obtaining short-notice authorization from the Traffic Commissioner. Some community transport groups have closed down, others have altered their services and some have been able to offer other assistance to people in need such as delivering essential items.
At present the best advice for anyone having to undertake essential travel is to check with their local bus company or community transport group before travelling.
