PEOPLE can take to the south Shropshire hills again by bus as a service has restarted for the summer.

The popular seasonal shuttle bus is back in service for visitors to the Shropshire Hills.

The Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Partnership welcomed passengers on board the shuttle buses for The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee weekend.

It was running throughout the Platinum Jubilee Bank Holiday.

Throughout the summer, the service will operate every weekend and Bank Holiday.

As well as enabling people to enjoy the views without taking their eyes off the road it will also ease congestion as well as at the same time helping the environment by reducing vehicle emissions.

The shuttles take people up onto the Long Mynd and around the Stiperstones. Stops along the way include the Stiperstones National Nature Reserve, the Bog Visitor Centre, the Stiperstones Inn and Bridges Country pub.

There are some great walks from, and between, the shuttle stops, passengers can stride out across the Long Mynd, explore the Golden Valley, hike along the Stiperstones ridge, or stroll along the easy access trail at the Bog.

This year passengers on the shuttle service will also be able to pay for their tickets on board using contactless payment, cash and concessionary bus cards. A season ticket can also be purchased in advance.
