Although we endeavour to run buses to the timetable, departure and arrival times are not guaranteed as they can be affected by traffic congestion, diversions, roadworks, breakdowns, accidents, weather conditions and other unforeseen events.  If there is a major service disruption, we will attempt to let passengers know via our facebook page or mobile phone.


Bus drivers will pick-up or drop-off passengers at designated bus stops.  However, the bus can stop anywhere along the route, by prior arrangement, and only where safe to do so.
