Service Disruptions

We are currently seeing a number of short notice service cancellations across our network. This is due to staff sickness and the national shortage of bus drivers as we emerge from COVID-19. 

Full service updates can be found on our twitter page @GPLUpdate and our live bus tracker allows you to see where your bus is. We’re currently experiencing high levels of demand and our phone lines are extremely busy, with calls taking longer than usual to answer. If your enquiry is non-urgent, we recommend calling back at another time or sending us an email using our enquiry forms in our help area. Our FAQs section has answers to our most commonly asked questions. Please bear with us and accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused by longer waiting times.


Thank you for your patience and understanding.
