Bus service between Sudbury and Clare set to be re-introduced
A bus service between Sudbury and Clare is being taken over by a different transport operator next month.
Previously operated by Beestons, the 236 bus route will be run by Chambers from April 8.
“As Sudbury’s local bus operator, we are delighted to be able to take this route on and offer our usual range of discounts and network tickets providing links further afield, which we hope will encourage more people to share transport and try the bus,” said managing director Jeremy Cooper.
To coincide with the new service, the 1715 bus service will run five minutes earlier at 5.10pm.
The new service will offer fares which match those of the ones which currently operate in the town, Chambers has confirmed.
A range of tickets options – in the form of weekly and monthly fares – are being introduced; while 16 to 19 year olds will be entitled to discounted fares.
Last year, the company announced it was committed to investing in the local community by introducing more services in the town, along with its new driver training programme.
