April 15 timetable improvements

4 months ago Mon 18th Mar 2024

On Monday 15 April, we will be making improvements to the timetables of jet black 1, orange 13 / 14 and purple 17, as well as some minor changes to yellow 26 and school-time journeys.

On jet black 1 and orange 13 / 14 these changes are mostly minor changes to help improve punctuality, with more buses during peak periods.

Purple 17 will see additional buses on the route throughout the day, with the frequency being increased up to every 8 minutes in the Monday to Friday peaks, and up to every 9 minutes during the rest of the day and on Saturdays. On Sundays buses will run up to every 10 minutes.

Late night journeys on yellow 26 will run 5 minutes later than present to connect better with late night trains from London.

For our customers using the Newbury & District 1a /1c route, there will also be a slight change to departure times to maintain an even level of service with jet black 1.

Full details of the changes can be found in the table below:

In addition to these bus time changes, we are also introducing a new timetable on BUZZ 9 from Tuesday 2 April as well as introducing a new route - BUZZ 18 on the same day.

minor changes to school services

We are also making a few minor changes to some school journeys to improve punctuality - an afternoon journey on sky blue 16 sees a small change in departure time and afternoon journeys on routes 89 and 91 are re-timed to remove the current need to wait for the timetable mid-route.
