Covid Watch 140: Ludlow town buses back to normal from Thursday 1 April when vax shuttle ends

Bus services have been disrupted in recent weeks to give priority to the shuttle bus between Ludlow and the Racecourse vaccination centre. From Thursday, the 701 and 722 will revert to their previous timetables, with each running every half an hour from Ludlow Assembly Rooms.

The vaccination programme at Ludlow Racecourse is due to slow due to a reduction in vaccine supplies in April. The vax shuttle will be suspended. It might be reinstated later but it has been little used. It was the right idea but there was little demand. I am not convinced it should be reinstated at the expense of the town service.

701 timetable from 1 April. Leaves Ludlow Assembly Rooms on the hour and on the half hour.

702 timetable from 1 April. Leaves Ludlow Assembly Rooms on the hour and on the half hour and calls at Ludlow Park and Ride.

Buses will run as normal on Easter Saturday. No buses on Good Friday, Easter Monday or on Sundays.

King Street will be closed on Fridays and Saturdays from 16 April until 19 June. During the closures, buses will operate from the Compasses on Corve Street.
