Our services are currently suspended, but we're hoping to be running again soon - the latest plan is to start running a limited service on all our routes but using just one bus from Monday July 6th. We've planned an 'emergency timetable' which will probably apply until September when the situation will be reviewed. We won't be running any buses on Saturdays (or Sundays and Public Holidays) until further notice.
However, please note that the government advice is still NOT to use public transport unless it is absolutely essential - you should use alternative means of transport, such as walking, cycling or car instead. For health and safety we'll only be able to carry a few passengers on each journey so if too many want to use our services we may have to leave some people behind. Current Government regulations mean that a suitable face covering MUST be worn on all buses and trains, so if you're not wearing a face covering we won't be able to let you travel.
In normal times we would be encouraging you to use our services as much as possible, but the current arrangements with the Local Authorities mean that we have been given a guarantee of concessionary pass income regardless of how many people travel, so we would be grateful if you would follow the government guidelines and refrain from using our services until the situation changes. Social distancing rules means we can only carry a very limited number of passengers, so please do use any alternative you have to help make more room for those who don't have any choice.
We don't have the technology to accept contactless payments, so if you need to pay the fare there is a flat fare of £4 for any journey, which should be put in the red box at the front of the bus. We can't give change. If you have a concessionary pass you can use it as normal; please always be ready to show it to the driver when boarding.
The proposed emergency timetables are now on the website on the coronavirus emergency timetables page and also on the individual route pages, but are subject to change. A summary of the proposed services is shown below. These services are subject to the approval of the Traffic Commissioner, so please keep checking the website for any updates. Copies of the timetables will be available in July on the buses, at Goring Railway Station and other usual outlets when they re-open.
