Safeguard Announces Improved Timetable on Bus Routes 4/5 with No Fare Increaseses

Safeguard Coaches has announced an improved timetable on its Guildford to Park Barn, via the Royal Surrey Hospital, route 4/5, starting on Saturday, September 2, with no fare changes.

The new bus service offered by Safeguard Coaches will start from Saturday, September 2

This is in partnership with Surrey County Council and will include more buses from Guildford town centre to Park Barn during Monday to Saturday evenings.

There will be additional evening journey opportunities from Woodbridge Hill, Southway and Park Barn to the Royal Surrey Hospital, and from the hospital direct to Guildford town centre.

There will be enhanced bus services on Sundays and public holidays, with buses running to / from Park Barn every 10 minutes during the daytime (the same as other days of the week), while the direct route between Guildford town centre and the hospital will once again see a bus every 20 minutes in both directions.

Safeguard adds that the Woodbridge Hill-Park Barn-Royal Surrey Hospital and Park Barn-Guildford railway station journeys opportunities lost as a result of the Arriva-initiated “bus war” a few years ago will be restored and timetables will be easier to understand.

Also, more time will be allowed for buses to complete their journeys, making services more reliable, says Safeguard, and new low-emission buses.

Free timetable leaflets are available on Safeguard’s buses and full details are available on Surrey County Council’s website.

Timetables on Safeguard’s Routes 3, 81, 39ABC, 40 and 690 will not change.

There will be no fare changes on any of Safeguard Coaches’ routes.

Safeguard Coaches says its gratefully acknowledges the additional financial support being offered to enable these improvements to take place.

    Still no improvement for bus services In Burpham! At least three bus stops not serviced on the “old” bus routes and no one has asked where people want to go to.

    Public transport is a real shambles out our way.

    No wonder everyone uses a car to get around.

    This is excellent news. A small start maybe, but at least a move in the right direction.
