Service Disruptions

Change of 229 route in Snitterfield 5th September - 31st December
Commencing Monday 5th September 2016 there will be a minor route change to the 229 service in Snitterfield

At present the 229 bus travels along Ingon Lane, White Horse Hill, and Smiths Lane before going on to Bearley and takes the same route through the village when going in the opposite direction.

The revised route will operate from Ingon Lane, past the War Memorial to Park Lane, and along Church Road before turning onto Smiths Lane.

This extra ’loop’ around the village will hopefully enable those living at the Park Lane end of the village, who have difficulty walking, to get off/on the bus nearer to their homes.
