Changes to the Wisbech Tesco bus service will come into effect next week.

Fenland District Council is trialing a new route and timetable for its service 68 bus from Monday, October 1, to offer a more frequent service to popular stops such as Tesco on Cromwell Road and the Horsefair Bus Station.

The changes have been made following passenger feedback received during the first 12 months of the pilot service.

Councillor David Oliver, portfolio holder for transport, said: “Passengers have told us which parts of the route they use most often and which they don’t, and we have used that information to create a new route and timetable.

“We’ve been able to focus on the more popular parts of the route and offer a more frequent service to those areas by removing the stops which haven’t generated much use.”

Timetables showing the changes are available in various outlets across Wisbech and on the council’s website at www.fenland.gov.uk/wisbechtescobus.
