Yellows announce timetable changes for route 5

5s to change

Popular service: Marc West, Yellow Buses’ Planning & Schedules Manager.

YELLOW Buses (YB) is to launch a new timetable for its route 5 with effect from later this month.

The Shire Operator of the Year is allocating a further bus to the popular 5a and 5b services which link Bournemouth with Kinson via West and East Howe.

The Yellows say the combination of an extra vehicle on the high-frequency route, together with the timetable changes, will further improve reliability for passengers.

From January 23, up to eight buses per hour will be serving the 5a and 5b routes from Monday to Saturday. It means a bus every 7.5 minutes at peak times.

Marc West, YB’s Planning & Schedules Manager, said: “This is a popular service but, due to a combination of factors, has not always been as reliable as we’d like.

“We’ve listened to our passengers and decided to allocate a further bus which should make a big difference in helping the service keep to time.”
