Weekend bus travel in Herefordshire

Free weekend bus travel ended 28 August 2022

After a year of free weekend travel on buses in the county, the Bus-It scheme ended on Sunday 28 August. However Herefordshire Council will continue to financially support the most popular additional Sunday bus services.

The Bus-It scheme was funded by a Government Covid-19 recovery grant, to encourage residents and visitors to make use of public transport to access leisure and retail facilities in Hereford and the market towns following the pandemic.

Bus-It was extremely popular, with thousands of people using the free bus service each month including a number of additional Sunday services introduced as part of the scheme.

Some bus operators will continue to offer fare promotions at weekends once the scheme ends, so you should check with the individual operator of the service you use to find out more.

The council will continue to financially support the Sunday services that have been most popular with passengers meaning the following services will continue to operate seven days a week:

  • 34/40 Ross-on-Wye - Monmouth & Ross Town
  • 420 Bromyard - Hereford
  • 476 Ledbury - Hereford
  • 461 Kington - Hereford
  • 426/492 combined service from Leominster - via Bodenham - Hereford

The Sunday services that were not well used and so will end on Sunday 28 August 2022 are:

  • 36 Monmouth – Hereford
  • 454 Fownhope - Hereford
  • 675 Ledbury – Great Malvern
  • 496/401 Pembridge - Leominster Circular and Leominster Town
