8:00am Sunday 24th February 2013 in News
A NEW weekend Shuttle bus service from Ludlow has been confirmed for 2013.
Castle Connect is the new Shropshire Hills Shuttle route linking Ludlow, Knighton, Clun and Bishop’s Castle.
“Whether you are into walking, shopping, castles or country pubs, this bus has it all and more,” said Stephanie Hayes, of Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding National Beauty.
“Funding from Shropshire Council’s Sustainable Transport Project has enabled us to trial the route this year and research undertaken in 2012 suggests this route with its stops at the different towns will be popular with visitors and residents alike.”
Local Bus Company, M and J Travel, based in Newcastle, has been awarded the contact and will be operating a 33 seater bus.
The Shuttles start on Saturday, May 4 and run every weekend and Bank Holiday until, September 29.
