Bus - service changes
http://www.centralbedfordshire.gov.uk/transport-and-streets/public_transport/changes/default.aspx

The transport team aim to get any changes to bus services on this page as early as possible. However some changes happen suddenly and therefore we cannot capture all changes before they happen, especially in bad weather conditions. For new timetables please visit the Traveline website 
Important notice

Changes are being made to a number of bus services in Central Bedfordshire on 28th March 2011. Many of these changes are a result of a spending review on bus services financially supported by Central Bedfordshire Council. Bus operators are also making some changes to their commercial services from the same date.

For BS, see the Herts CC/Intalink board. I will do a review of the Essex CC bundle that I got this week, when I hear answers to a few of my questions!

Put this in the same topic - picked up on Facebook! 

Herberts Travel will shortly (1st April) have a new low-floor, easy access bus on the Biggleswade Town Services... and pics to prove it's not an April 1st wind-up!
