Timetable changes from 2 April
It's that time of year when the timetable is due to change. That can only mean one thing - Summer is on it's way!!
The new timetable starts on Monday 2 April 2018 (Easter Monday) and copies will be available for collection at Liberation Station from Wednesday 28th March 2018.
We would like to thank our customers for their input at this years consultation and throughout the year. We have had a huge response and it's your feedback that has helped create this year's timetable which will come into effect on 2nd April.
The Spring / Summer timetable is based on last year’s service, with the following enhancements, all of which have been suggested by our customers.
Route 1 – additional Sunday services (continuing to make a 20 minute frequency during the day all year round)
Route 1A – additional evening services and 1 additional Sunday service in the morning compared to last Spring
Route 2 – additional evening service, plus an earlier bus from St Catherine and a later bus to St Catherine for commuter journeys
Route 3 – additional summer services (from 28 May) making a 30 minute frequency throughout the day Monday – Saturday
Route 13 – slight timing changes to make a even headway to the zoo in the summer
Route 15 – additional Sunday services (continuing to make a 20 minute frequency during the day all year round)
Route 20 – slight amendment of route
Route 27 – is back again this year – predominantly a weekend route (however also operates daily throughout the school holidays) to St Lawrence and St Mary, making visiting Tamba Park and La Mare Wine Estate even easier than before.
Route 28 – Sunday service to include Les Landes, and Portinfer giving a service to houses in this area where previously there had been none.

During the summer of 2018 we will be investing in changing the ticket machines on our buses to allow contactless payments, which will in turn speed up boarding and offer even more flexible ways to pay for your bus journey.
This represents a significant investment and is being done due to direct feedback from our customers.

From 2 April 2018 some of our bus fares will be changing too, increasing marginally in line with inflation.
The changes to fares are as follows:
