Service Revisions in County Durham and Darlington

From Sunday 10th April 2022.

Passengers are advised that from 10th April 2022, Arriva intends to make some changes to services, routes and timetables across the County Durham and Darlington area.

A summary of the changes is below. Please note, services not listed will remain as per their current routes and timetables. Revised timetables for services that are changing are available online/on the Arriva app.

2/2A    Red Hall to Branksome

A revised route and timetable will be in place, which will see most journeys extended to serve the stop north of the Jedburgh Drive junction, to facilitate the new development. Buses will still continue to serve the current Branksome route as normal.

6    Durham to Cockfield

We’re pleased to advise that we intend to introduce an improved Monday to Saturday daytime frequency on this service, with buses revised to operate up to every 15 minutes.

7    Durham to Darlington

We’re pleased to advise that we intend to re-instate the normal Monday to Friday timetable on this service, with buses revised to operate up to every 15 minutes. Saturday daytimes will remain at every 20 minutes for the time being, as we continue to improve driver availability.

A minor timetable revision will be in place on the early evening journeys from Spennymoor, in order to improve punctuality.
