New Bus Service - Use it or Lose it!
Posted on October 4, 2011
A new bus service commenced on Monday, July 25th 2011 serving Totternhoe, Eaton Bray and Billington. The new Route 71 will operate 4 times per day through the villages to Leighton Buzzard on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, AND also extends further to THREE times per day to Dunstable calling at Sainsbury's and Asda.
This now connects the villages to 2 choices of towns and ALL four major supermarkets for shopping.
South Beds Dial-a-Ride are a Community Bus operator based in Totternhoe and have reached agreement to provide a complementary service to Central Bedfordshire Council to greatly expand this service using their minibuses which are a regular sight around their base in Totternhoe.
From April 2011 the 73 service was reduced to only one return per day to Leighton Buzzard on 3 days per week, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays only, giving only a short stay in the town.
The new service is experimental and will be reviewed if underused. See bus stops for timetable details or contact South Beds Dial-a-Ride on 01525 222331.
