Elderly residents have access to free community bus

 Published on: 2nd May 2019   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

Senior citizens and people in sheltered accommodation in Croxley Green are able to use a bus free service to Watford Town Centre. 

For the past 28 years the free service has been provided by the parish council to help residents get to town who aren’t able to use public transport. 

The scheme was first set up in 1991 as a pilot study because a petition from residents in Hanover Court couldn’t get into the town centre.

There are three different journeys; the first starts at Winton Drive Approach at 9.30am and travels through Shaftsbury Court, Malvern Way, Barton Way, Hanover House and Sherborne Way, returning from Watford at 12 noon. 

The second starts at 10am from Sycamore Approach, travelling through Valley Walk, Frankland Road, Chalmers Court, All Saints Lane and New Road, returning at 12.30pm. 

The final journey starts at the junction of Links Way and Warwick Way at 10.30am, travelling past Dover Way, Little Green Lane, Durrants Drive, Kenilworth Drive, Manor Way and Grove Court, returning from Watford at 1.15pm. 

Councillor Derek Wallington said: “If you would like to make use of this bus, but do not see your road on the attached route, please contact the parish council office, who will be happy to arrange a pick-up point for you to enjoy and make use of this great service.

“It is a very friendly bus, and we tend to keep our regular driver Linda, who is very friendly caring and helpful, there are also three volunteers, and one will travel on the bus every week.”
