Bus services increase in Shropshire as people return to work

By Nick Humphreys | Oswestry | News | Published: | Last Updated:

Bus services have increased on many of Shropshire's routes after more people returned to their workplaces today.

Bus services have increased following reduced timetables during the pandemic

Arriva has updated its timetables following government advice that people in England who are unable to work home from should now return to the office.

Emergency timetables with reduced frequency were put in place just before lockdown.

Many Shrewsbury services are back to normal, but there is still no service on some routes including Shrewsbury to Newport and Oxon Park and Ride.

Most of Telford's Monday to Saturday and Monday to Sunday routes have fully returned to operation. During the pandemic most routes have only been running as late as 7pm, with Sunday services only running hourly. Oswestry to Shrewsbury, Oswestry to Welshampton and a number of other Oswestry services are resuming, including several weekend services.
