Service Changes in Leicestershire from 23rd February 2020

Start Date: 23/02/2020

Location: Leicestershire

From 23th February 2020 we will be making some changes to services in Leicestershire.

126/127 Leicester to Loughborough

We're making minor changes to the timetable of this service to improve punctuality during the morning an evening peak periods. There will also be changes to journeys around school times to provide more capacity towards Loughborough in the mornings, as well as better meeting the needs of students at Rawlins Academy, Loughborough College, and DeLisle College.

There will be changes to journeys serving the Rothley Lodge development following feedback from employers on the timetable currently operating.  Journeys from Loughborough to Rothley Lodge will be approximately 15 mins earlier than present, with those returning to Loughborough approx. 15 mins later.

153 Leicester to Market Bosworth/158 Leicester - Hinckley - Nuneaton

We're improving these services to make it even easier getting to work at Poundstretcher near Desford.  An additional journey of service 153 will depart Leicester St Margaret's Bus Station at 0515 Monday to Friday, calling outside Poundstretcher at 0542; in the evenings a journey of service 158 will divert via Desford Crossroads to call at Poundstretcher at 2214 before rejoining the usual route at The Red Cow and continuing into Leicester City Centre.
