Free bus travel at weekends within Herefordshire

ALL bus travel within Herefordshire will be free on weekends from now on, Herefordshire Council has pledged.

Thanks to investment as part of the £6 million Covid-19 recovery fund, anybody will be able to hop on and off any bus in the county, as many times as they like, without paying a penny.

The only condition is that the journey must be entirely within the county.

To help people make the most of the scheme, there will also be additional services on Sundays, serving several locations including Bromyard, Ledbury, Leominster, Kington and Colwall.

No information has been released yet about the extra services.

Coun John Harrington, cabinet member for infrastructure and transport, said the scheme would make it easier and cheaper to travel, helping connect people and boost recovery from the pandemic.

With the free travel starting this Saturday, he said: “We are very pleased to be able to offer free, unlimited weekend bus travel for the whole county for what we hope will be at least a year.
