summer timetable change

2 months ago Fri 9th Jul 2021

As another summer appears (although the weather seems to have not been given the memo) our thoughts turn to our summer timetables. 

Every year, during summer, we generally see fewer customers on board as people take time off work and go on holiday... which still is able to happen currently! We take this opportunity to do some changes to certain timetables, some permanent, some temporary, to account for the drop in customer numbers. This year is no different, and we have now finalised the changes which will start on Monday 26 July. 

See the table below for your new timetables and a brief description of what is changing. For Green Line customers, please note that the changes will start from Saturday 24 July.

The reintroduction of the extra night buses on orange 13 and purple 17 for Friday and Saturday evenings will start from Friday 23 July.
