BACK ON THE ROAD!
The Yellow Bus is planning to start a weekly shopping trip to Petersfield, every Wednesday from September 2nd. This is hoped to meet the needs of Midhurst residents following the closure of Budgens and before the opening of the new Sainsbury’s store. (Current guidelines make it practically impossible to re-start, safely, the normal scheduled service).
In order to comply with these guidelines numbers will be restricted and passengers are being asked to book by phoning the Yellow Bus co-ordinator on 07879 556 568 (the line will be open after Friday 28th August).
Passengers will be picked up from or near their homes in the Midhurst area after 09.00 and have about 1 ½ hours shopping time in Petersfield.
Safety of passengers and escorts will be paramount and guidelines on social distancing, PPE, hand and surface sanitising will be strictly followed.
Dependant on demand, the Yellow Bus and Tandem will consider other ways in which they may help Midhurst residents.
For further information please phone the Co-ordinator 07879 556 568
Midhurst Community Bus is a fully licensed bus service, but is staffed entirely by volunteers. It operates scheduled services in and around Midhurst on four mornings per week: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. The services bring passengers into Midhurst town centre from other parts of the town, as well as from outlying villages not served by other bus operators.
Passengers may also request to be taken to and/or collected from the Riverbank Medical Centre (see timetables).
The timetables include frequent stops at the Grange Centre, Budgens and Tesco.
MCB services can be used by anyone, not just local residents. There is a flat fare, currently £1.20p per single journey (or free with a bus pass), child fare £0.60. All services are ‘Hail and Ride’, which means that the bus can stop at any point along our routes provided it is safe to do so.
If you have any questions, contact us click here, or call us on 07879 556568. If you see the bus in or around Midhurst, feel free to ask the driver or escort for any information you need. We are always pleased to help.
Got a little time to spare?
Can you give us one morning a month? We are always on the lookout for volunteer drivers and escorts.
