Changes to service 68 from 27th September 2021 26/09/2021
We're making a number of exciting changes to our 68 service from Monday 27th September 2021
Buses extending to Ampthill will operate to a new route via Poppy Drive, Abbey Road and Oliver Street. New peak time journeys have been added at 06:50 returning at 17:50 from Bedford Bus Station- ideal for those returning to the office or working in the town centre.
Buses will operate a revised route from the Saxon Centre via Ridge Road, Wilkinson Drive and Woburn Road. St John's Street will no longer be served- customers are advised to catch the bus from nearby stops at Kempston High Street or The Duke Inn.
A revised map for the service can be found here.
We're operating a number of journeys to the Marsh Leys Industrial Estate at key shift times- ideal for workers at Sainsburys, Argos or ASDA. Fares for single journeys between Bedford and Marsh Leys are £3.60 single or £6.00 return. A £12.50 weekly ticket is available too- valid across all Grant Palmer services within the Bedford Zone.
From this date service 668 will be renumbered 68 and operate via Wilkinson Road between Saxon Centre and Amazon. Our range of return, day and week tickets will be available on bus too- pay by cash or contactless.
