566 service back on the timetable

Rob George 1st Jul, 2020

A POPULAR Pinvin to Pershore bus route is among those set to start up again next week as county council chiefs bring more services back on the timetable.

The 566 was among the services halted in late March because of the Coronavirus lockdown but will be available to commuters again from Monday (July 6).

LMS Travel run a number of buses in Worcestershire and had to cease operation of services due to the pandemic.

Coun Alan Amos, cabinet member for Highways, welcomed the reinstatement of more bus services.

“The company unfortunately had to cease operation of its bus services due to staff capacity issues as a number of its drivers were in the shielded category which made it impossible for it to run its schedule.

“They have informed us that they are installing perspex screens and have put in place rigorous cleaning regimes as well as issuing staff with PPE.

“So we are looking forward to the public regaining the confidence to use bus services again as soon as possible,” he added.
