Shropshire Council has agreed to renew Minsterley Motors’ contract to run Ludlow’s town services – the 701 and the 722 (which serves the park and ride). This is seriously good news and I know that the decision will be popular with bus users. We’ve had more than our fair share of bus troubles in Ludlow. There was a time when buses had no disabled or buggy access and broke down with depressing regularity. After R&B withdrew from running the services, Minsterley stepped in at short notice. The quality of service was a revelation with new, low floor buses and friendly bus drivers.
