The No.59 bus which serves the local Whitchurch area three mornings a week (Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays) is still picking up passengers and is a lifeline for some to reach the town for shopping or other essential services.
With an easing of the ‘lockdown’ a phased return to a more normal service has commenced.
The service will be operating on its pre-Covid days using a booking system – just call 01256 320501. This will mean that no one needing the bus would be left at a bus stop, as capacity is being determined by the social distancing advice of the time.
BCT drivers are undertaking special Covid-19 instruction on how to safely operate and maintain their vehicles befor, during, and after each use, with appropriate PPE and cleaning materials being given to each driver.
