Advised by Telford & Wrekin Council.
You may be aware that Arriva altered the registration for the service 23 bus route from the 31st August. This is a commercially operated service. Certain journeys have been withdrawn as they required other buses, which they no longer have available, to operate the present timetable.
The journeys in question are 0754 Ketley to Oakengates, 0804 Oakengates to Town Centre. In addition the 1601 Oakengates to Town Centre will ONLY operate on school holidays and Saturdays
The Council is not in a position to replace all of these journeys as they would require a bus with all its on costs to provide.
However to minimise the impact we do have a bus doing other work that has a small window of opportunity to provide a replacement of part of a journey. This bus has been utilised and will depart from Ketley Bank 0812 providing a replacement for the majority of the journey to the town centre. It will then operate onwards as a 77 to Dawley giving students a connection to Phoenix School.
I have attached a copy of the timetable that will be used from 2nd September. The journey highlighted in yellow is the extra journey we have asked Arriva to operate on our behalf. No 23 Bus Timetable
