Timetable Update: Smoother School Runs Ahead

Friday 14th June will see a timetable update for the 232 Daffodil Line bus service, with an earlier morning departure from Ledbury aimed at delivering a more punctual school run for John Masefield pupils.

Our first weekday service will depart Ledbury Station 10 minutes earlier at 07.20,allowing extra time for the run to Newent and enabling a more punctual arrival at school for JMHS students, even if we encounter roadworks. 

Most passengers will see no change to their journey times, but for our student passengers, its an important improvement. 

“ We are constantly monitoring the service and customer feedback,” said Buses4Us Chair Clare Stone, “and it had become apparent that roadworks combined with morning rush hour traffic was sometimes making our student passengers late for school.”

“As roadworks somewhere along the route seem destined to be pretty much an everyday occurrence we took the decision, in conjunction with our operator DRM Bus, to amend the timetable.”

We hope that this will enable a prompt 8.00 am departure from Newent and punctual arrival at John Masefield High School for the start of the school day.

Our student passengers are a very important part of the service, they are one of the main reasons the Daffodil Line was established, so it’s vital we get things right for them 

Another minor tweak to the timetable is slightly later departures on our Friday and Saturday evening services, which will be welcomed by many of our evening patrons. 

New timetables are currently being printed and updated information will be available online and at bus stops later this week.
