Cannock & Stafford routes to be withdrawn on evenings & Sundays from 1 April 2018

01 April 18

Following Staffordshire County Council’s in-depth consultation process, which aimed to ascertain public reaction regarding how subsidised bus routes could be altered to make budgetary savings, the announced cuts to funding will regretfully result in the withdrawal of all services provided by our Cannock depot on Sundays, as well as some evening journeys during the rest of the week, with effect from 1 April 2018.

We recognise that this course of action will impact bus users, and can assure you that this decision was not taken without due consideration.  It is solely as a response to the financial implications that the withdrawal of the council subsidies will have on our local business.

Full timetables will be available soon.
