The current operator is unable to run the above routes from Monday 30th September, however all students will be accommodated on alternative services from their regular bus stops, although the pick-up time on these services may be a little later than normal.
Please can all students be at the stops at their regular time to avoid missing the service. The villages affected by this change are Turvey, Harrold, Carlton and Odell.
Revised timetables will be distributed to students once they are available.
