411 Whitchurch - Hereford

We regret to inform passengers that after Wednesday 19 December 2018 the bus service 411 between Whitchurch and Hereford will be withdrawn. This is due to a recent retendering process that failed to establish any contract bidders meeting the council's subsidy limit. Therefore the new cost of the contract would unfortunately have been financially unsustainable.

Alternative provision for some journeys can be provided by community transport.
