Minor change to 417 route

Post by AdamH » 21:36 Friday 1st December 2017

From the New Year, the 417 will no longer run around Forge Bank in Bosbury, and all journeys will run direct through Bosbury along the main road.

This minor diversion was started many years ago, not long after the route was extended from Cradley to Bosbury and Ledbury. At that time most of the houses were sheltered accommodation and we picked up loads, but these days it seems to be full of younger people and the roads are always blocked with cars.

Since September I have only pick up three passengers round there, and I've never had to drop anyone off. I have been stuck twice and had to reverse out, and so far I've never managed to get round without mounting the pavement... I suspect the lack of bus will not be missed by anyone!

Running times will not be changed.
