New 61X in St Neots
The afternoon school journey on route 63 will be replaced by a new 61X journey from Monday 3 September 2018. The 61X will operate via the town centre, in order to maintain a reasonable service from Market Square to Eaton Socon during the afternoons.
Please see the local bus section (within “Routes” from the menu at the top of the page) to download a copy of the PDF timetable from 3 September.
Minor change to route 400 from 3 September 2018
The first journey on route 400 will start at Easton on schooldays. The bus will also call at Hinchingbrooke School bus park on schooldays and the afternoon schooldays-only journey will now terminate at Easton instead of Grafham. Minor adjustments to some other times have been made to improve punctuality.
Routes 31 and 75 from 28 July
Whippet Coaches will no longer be the operator of routes 31 and 75 from Saturday 28 July 2018. These bus services will be operated by A2B Bus and Coach Limited instead. We would like to thank all our passengers for travelling with us during the years we have been associated with these services.
Changes to some fares in St Neots and Huntingdon on 28 July 2018
Some ticket prices will change If you pay the driver. However, we are introducing new m-Tickets which will mean customers do not need to pay more if they have downloaded our new App on to their mobile phone (see story below). This is because we want less people paying the driver in cash, therefore helping to reduce delays at bus stops. The tickets are:
- St Neots Day Rover – the price will become £2.70, but you will be able to purchase 10 St Neots Day Rovers for £25 on the m-Ticket App (so still £2.50 each)
- St Neots Week Rover – the price will become £11, but you will still be able to purchase a St Neots Week Rover for £10 on the m-Ticket App
- Huntingdon Week Rover – the price will become £13.50, but you will still be able to purchase a Huntingdon Week Rover for £12.50 on the m-Ticket App
2 December 2017 – Free Parking
On Saturday 2 December we helped the 5th St Ives Scout Group with their latest challenge – a full-size game of Monopoly! The Scouts had to travel between St Ives and Cambridge visiting locations associated with the famous board game. Our Busway C service was ideal as it now operates every 30 minutes on Saturday mornings. Using the bus also means no need to find and pay for parking!
